The U.S. Supreme Court Cites Ken Adams

Our very own Chief Content Officer and contract expert Ken Adams is back in the news. Last Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court issued an opinion that cites A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting. That’s the book written by Ken Adams, our chief content officer and head of Adams Contracts, a division of LegalSifter. We’re sure Ken must be gratified. After all, that means he’s made it—in the words of a LinkedIn commenter—“to the big leagues of citations.” On the other hand, he’s already established himself as the leading authority, internationally, on how to say clearly and concisely in a contract whatever you want to say. And he’s been hammering away on that subject for more than 20 years. That’s why another LinkedIn commentator said “your work commands such respect and admiration.” So Ken didn’t need this
citation to make his reputation. But being cited by the U.S. Supreme Court is widely regarded as conferring a particular kind of recognition. If that means more people are exposed to Ken’s work, or give it greater attention,
we’re all in favor of that.
