Restitution, a vital means of redress in unjust enrichment cases, is a fundamental legal principle manifested explicitly in contract, tort, and much of the common law. Now, offering insightful analysis of principles and practical, expert advice about available remedies in a wide range of actions, The Law of Restitution gives you powerful strategies for cases involving such elements or allegations as:

  • Withdrawal of professional services
  • Disputes between contractors and subcontractors
  • Void leases
  • Foreclosure
  • Fraudulent bank conduct
  • Securities fraud
  • Copyright, patent, or trade secret infringement
  • Breach of advertising, consulting, or franchise contracts
  • Unjust enrichment of third-party beneficiaries

The Law of Restitution shows how important restitution is in many contract situations, sometimes as an alternative or supplement to damages, sometimes as the only choice for obtaining relief. You'll find representative cases and pleadings in abundance, to help you plan your client's position and strategy.

Note: Online subscriptions are for three-month periods.
