This resource educates lawyers and business professionals on how to draft "boilerplate" provisions, a legal term that refers to the standardized, one-size-fits-all provisions that generally appear at the end of a contract. Each chapter tackles one of 20 provisions and analyzes why it is important, the key legal and business issues raised, and how to draft the provision to suit a particular transaction. This analysis not only helps readers better understand how to draft these provisions in their contracts, but also helps them better understand the other party's proposed provision.

For years, academic thinking on negotiations and auctions has matured in different silos. Negotiation theory focused on deals between two parties, investigating psychological motivations and invoking ideas like 'best alternative to a negotiated agreement.' Auction theory, on the other hand, focused exclusively on situations where multiple bidders were involved and the highest bidder won. Harvard Business School professor Guhan Subramanian specializes in understanding how deals. As he studied deals in the news, observed deals as a participant and invited legendary dealmakers into his classroom, one commonality kept cropping up. Assets most often change hand not in a pure negotiation or a pure auction, but by a mechanism that freely combines elements from both schools of thought. Negotiators are 'fighting on two fronts' across the table, but also on the same side of the table with known, unknown, or possible competitors. In Negotiauctions, Subramanian provides a lively tour of both negotiation and auction theory, following those summaries with an in-depth look at his hybrid theory that includes strategies that readers can use in real life situations. Along the way Subramanian employs multiple case studies, from studio negotiations over a new season of the TV show Frasier to his own experience purchasing a car. Classroom tested in one of the world's best business schools, Negotiauctions is an indispensable how-to guide for anyone involved in the sale of high-value assets.
