Regulating Contracts

Hugh Collins

Oxford University Press

Contract lawyers perform two principal tasks: first, to help plan a transaction, and second, to participate in dispute settlement. The planning role forms the larger part of their work. This chapter begins by considering the significance of this planning role to the practice of creating and performing contracts. It then examines the difficulties encountered by lawyers in devising appropriate plans for business relations. The major difficulty concerns the inevitable incompleteness of contractual planning.
