Now you can draft and defend accurate, well-supported third party legal opinions with complete confidence! In Glazer and FitzGibbon on Legal Opinions: Drafting, Interpreting, and Supporting Closing Opinions in Business Transactions, Third Edition, three outstanding authorities give you intensely practical guidance - including sample opinion language throughout the text - that shows you how to determine which versions of the standard opinion clauses you should use, establish the factual basis for the opinion, and take all the steps necessary to support your opinion. The authors describe customary practice and its implications, identify areas of uncertainty and suggests how disputed areas should be resolved.

Extensive appendices reproduce all the ABA and TriBar Opinion Committee Reports, as well as all the Bar Association reports of various states. This valuable information is also included on a bonus companion CD-ROM.
