Chapter Summary

Assignment clauses are primarily concerned with the intervention of third parties in contractual relationships between the original contracting parties. This chapter looks at assignment and transfer and synonymous clauses in international commercial contracts from the perspective of international contract draftsmen. It observes general trends and problems regarding these clauses. The various elements of these clauses are emphasized and are given extensive attention. To fully understand assignment clauses, one should take an overall perspective of assignment clauses including their various elements, other contract clauses and factual background of circumstances in which these clauses have been used. Attempts to classify assignment clauses may create the false impression that all assignments clauses fall within one of these categories. One should note that assignment clauses in international commercial contracts tend to be standardized, to a certain extent, since their contents and wordings are often very similar from one contract to another.

Keywords: assignment clauses; contract draftsmen; contractual relationship; international commercial contracts; third parties
