New to this Edition:

  • New chapters on powers of attorney and factoring have been added.
  • The chapter about legal conflicts has been updated.
  • Additional security coverage, particularly in relation to the operation of settlement systems.

The Law of Assignment is the most authoritative work on the law of intangible property and choices in action. Its simple and straightforward structure addresses all types of intangible property (debts, contractual rights, securities, intellectual property, leases, rights/causes of action, and equitable rights), taking into account the nature of intangible property, how it is created, and how it is transferred or assigned.

The book's first section explores broad ideas relating to intangibles and their transfer, while the second section looks at practical aspects relating to specific types of intangibles, such as securities, insurance contracts, leases, and intellectual property under the law.

New chapters on powers of attorney and factoring, both of which are crucial in legal practise, have been included to the third edition. The chapter on leases has been expanded to include the leasing of chattels, and there is more material on securities, particularly regarding the operation of settlement systems.
