This volume is an empirical analysis of the use of retention of title clauses. It focuses on the work of insolvency practitioners and lawyers in defending and asserting these claims, and examines the negotiating process involved, using this to create a model for out-of-court negotiation and settlement in a commercial context.

Sally Wheeler is a Lecturer in Law at Keele University.Review:
'this is a scholarly and well-produced piece of work ... It represents a thorough, competent and well-produced piece of research. More to the point, it provides an interesting excursus into the grubby market-place from which insolvency lawyers make their money, and a useful antidote for anyone
else suffering from a surfeit of commercial legal technicality.'
Andrew Tettenborn, The Cambridge Law Journal
'this book, and books of its type, should be required reading for all law students and would-be practitioners, for they demonstrate "dramaturgically" ... the gulf that exists between theory and practice. Courses on negotiating skills would also seem to be a must.'
Aviva Y M French, University of Western Australia, Western Australian Law Review, December 1992
`is an interesting study of the operation of reservation of title clauses in practice ... Wheeler gives us all an insight in the dismal world of corporate failure ... essential reading for every ivory towered academic who purports to know something about commercial law. It is a must for any
practitioner who is asked to pursue or defend a reservation of title claim, but has no previous experience in the field ... this scholarly work brings to life a subject which has been flogged to death in the textbooks. Thank you, Sally Wheeler.'
