About the Author:

Anurag K. Agarwal, after completing Master of Laws from Harvard Law School, plunged into the world of academics and has been with IIMA since 2004.

He graduated as a mechanical engineer from Motilal Nehru Regional Engineering College (MNREC), Allahabad, (now known as MNNIT) in 1990. He worked with Bharat Petroleum for less than a year, before deciding to study law, completed Bachelor, Master and Doctor of Laws from Lucknow University, and a second Master of Laws from Harvard Law School. He practised as an advocate in Lucknow for about seven years and in Delhi for about a year–and-a-half, switched over to full-time teaching in 2004, with a brief stint at Management Development Institute (MDI), Gurgaon, and then with IIMA, in the Business Policy area.

He has been the recipient of the first Marti Mannariah Gurunath Outstanding Teacher Award for the batch of 2011–2013, instituted by Professor Marti G. Subrahmanyam, Stern School, New York University (PGP 1969, IIMA), in the memory of his father.
He has been the chairperson of the One Year Post-Graduate Programme in Management for Executives (PGPX), the chairperson of the Post-Graduate Programme in Public Management and Policy (PGP-PMP), the chairperson of the Business Policy area and the students exchange coordinator at IIMA.

He has coordinated and conducted executive education programmes for the government and for a large number of public and private companies.

His teaching and research interests primarily are in the area of business dispute resolution by arbitration. Other areas of interest are infrastructure, corporate governance, government and law and intellectual property.
He has authored the book Business and Intellectual Property: Protect Your Ideas (2010) and writes ‘Lawfully Yours’, a popular weekly column for DNA, Ahmedabad.

Review:

Professor Agarwal has straddled business, law and academia providing his book with the rigour of a researcher, the world view of management and the practical issues noticed by lawyers in their professional life. His multiple viewpoints strengthened by his interaction with industry participants at the IIM Ahmedabad (IIMA) campus give him a strong foundation on the subject which is never divorced from reality. This is a must-read for managers, students and law professionals who are interested in the subject.--Sandeep Parekh,

I am happy to know that Professor Anurag K. Agarwal, an engineer turned lawyer, turned Professor of business law at IIMA has come out with another unconventional book titled Contracts and Arbitration for Managers, bringing holistic perspective of the concept of contract and arbitration with a practical approach. In the post-liberalisation era, it is fairly common for commercial contracts, whether with private corporations or with the government, to usually contain an arbitration clause, which requires sound legal strategy right from the language of terms of contract including arbitration clause, till the execution/enforcement stage. I am sure stakeholders will find this book to be a complete encyclopaedia on the subject.--Justice N.N. Mathur,

It is one of the most lucid read. Only Professor Agarwal could pull up such a work, where the intricate concept of laws are explained in the most understandable terms. I believe it is a must-read for corporate managers. Especially in modern times when every manager is facing issues with contract management and alternative dispute resolution, this book comes as an interesting read. I have had the occasion of attending Professor Agarwal's classes during my MBA days from IIMA. Let me say there are very few teachers who can teach the complex legal principles in such simple language. Most of my understanding of contract laws and international commercial arbitration is courtesy the teachings of Professor Agarwal. I can say he is one of the best teachers that IIMA has.--Mukul Shastry,

Contracts and arbitration are things everyone need to understand. Professor Agarwal's classes proved absolutely invaluable to me when I started working. It is great that he will now be sharing the benefit of his knowledge and experience with a much wider audience through this book.--Aditi Krishnakumar,

[This is] an outstanding book written authoritatively on the topic of contract and arbitration. It fills a huge void on the topic and would be useful and of great interest to every business manager at all levels. Professor Agarwal's academic distinction and professional brilliance in engineering and law with a vast experience on these subjects make him ideally suited to write the book: A unique book of its kind.

--Bishwajit Bhattacharyya,

Ten years back, during my brief stint as an intern under Professor Agarwal, one of the projects I loved working on was in relation to mental health laws in India and abroad. As it was my first internship, I tried hard to include all relevant sections of the legislations. When I took my work over to him, he asked me if I had watched the movies Seema and Sadma. We saw portions of both movies in his chamber and debated over unsoundness of mind and consent. He always managed to bring any subject alive. That is exactly what he has done with this book.

Peppering each chapter with instances that draw up parallels in real life, the book goes on to explore the origin of the contract and arbitration law, analyses them from an international as well as Indian perspective, clearly enumerates the various facets involved and contains some very direct takeaways, answering the practical doubts that every manager faces when dealing with contracts filled with legalese and arbitration clauses. Simply put, this book effectively demystifies the law and would be an effective guide for all professionals.--Karishma Baria.

In today's topsy-turvy but engulfing and dynamic business, Indian markets are equally pulsating with international market and its parties. The parties which have global footprints are entering into contracting relationship with Indian counterparts and their managers. These managers, who are mostly from engineering background, have proven their mettle in the global business world from number crunching to applying business strategies.

In today's scenario, the onus of interpretation between the contracting entities on risks and rewards, and considerations and obligations is required to be understood with bare threaded details by our responsible Indian managers who are administrating the contracts. But Indian managers feel suffocated when they are on collision path in certain business entangles and unable to understand contracts, arbitration and litigation aspects of contracting. They do not feel that their legal armour is foolproof to understand the take on such business entangles.

However, now they have a chance to peep into the world of contracting and arbitration through this book by Professor Anurag K. Agarwal who is an engineer-turned-lawyer-turned-professor at IIMA. His sheer magic of changing complex legal concepts to chewable and simpler form for today's Indian managers to understand legal concepts would act as effective enabler to take on such legal entangles with confidence by bringing them on the path of awareness of laws of contracts. I wish Professor Agarwal continues to connect the legal world and the ambit of fast-growing business, seamlessly helping today's engineers-turned-managers.--Vikas Sobti,

A major hiccup for companies willing to do business in India is their concern over how to make way through the labyrinthine legal structure. Enforcement of contracts and a swift hassle-free dispute resolution mechanism is at the heart of rule of law. Suitable guiding literature in this regard has been missing and this book can equip professionals, managers, entrepreneurs and the like to understand the intricacies of this vital domain. This book comes handy both for the working professional as well as for the curious academic.

Professor Agarwal emerges at his best in this book and comes out as the master of his art. His grasp of the subject matter at hand is profound and the coherence in his ideas impeccable. The book reflects years of his experience in legal, managerial and academic arenas. We hope to see more such marvels from Professor Agarwal in future.--Rohan Anand,

"This book will prove to be boon for quick and clear understanding of the subject. It is an easy tool which will expand the knowledge of understanding of complex law of contract and arbitration law in India."


--Consulting Ahead, July 2016

The scholarship of the author is evident from the unique style of narration of intricate technical details...perhaps this is the only book dealing with an area of considerable business significance. The book contains a crisp yet summarized description of the significant legal issues deserving attention of working managers who may not be well versed with the technicalities of law.

--Vision, "Volume 21 (Issue 1), March 2017 "
