Collaboratively working on documents can get messy and it can also be a challenge following the trail of changes to figure out who adjusted what. In this report from On The Road, host Laurence Colletti talks with Adams Contracts Consulting LLC founder and president Ken Adams about improving the contract drafting process, why boilerplate language persists, and what attorneys can do to fix it.
Ken Adams isn’t a leading authority on the building blocks of contract language, he’s the leading authority. Besides being a deal lawyer, Ken is a writerly sort with a serious aversion to inefficiency in public affairs. He has spent the past twenty years wrestling with the nuances of indemnify and hold harmless and the like, a task evidently of limited appeal to others. Ken is author of the groundbreaking book “A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting” (3d ed. 2013). He gives seminars worldwide and helps companies improve their contracts.
