Increasing competition in the legal market forces law firms to rely on qualified human resources, unique marketing and specialised business development strategies in order to stand out and grow further in their respective market. This book focuses on the role and methodology of specialised business development to become a key competency of a law firm. Business development is crucial for law firms but it is a challenging task due to the specific features of the sector. This specialised business development distinguishes law firms from other service companies since lawyers tend to see themselves as the unique business developers and it seems to be difficult for them to accept business development professionals, who have no legal education, as valuable business support. A literature research, a well prepared survey and interviews with Law firm and BIG 4 Senior Partners will provide insight on this problematic from different perspectives and will be the basis for recommendations how business development can be organised in law firms.

Assignment is a crucial topic in commercial law, and this new work by Gregory Tolhurst is the most comprehensive work on the assignment of contractual rights ever published. It seeks to explain 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. However, the work will also be required reading for academics teaching contract, equity and personal property.
