Assignment is a crucial topic in commercial law, and this new work by Gregory Tolhurst is the most comprehensive work ever published on the assignment of contractual rights. The book explains the existence, meaning, and application of the rules governing the assignment of contractual rights, and it does this by reference to the idea that assignments involve transfers. The book is logically structured to follow the issues that arise in planning, drafting, and enforcing an assignment, including: what is meant by "assignment"; what is the distinction between legal and equitable assignments; how an assignable contractual right is identified; what formalities apply to assignment; and what rights and remedies are available to the parties to an assignment. The topic of assignment is of such universal importance to commercial lawyers that all practicing lawyers will find this work invaluable. Additionally, academics teaching contract, equity, and personal property will no doubt find this work to be required reading.
