Gault on Commercial Law brings together commentary and analysis on the principal statutes which regulate commercial activity in New Zealand. It is a valuable resource for anyone who is required to provide advice on, or to research, commercial law in New Zealand.

The format is designed to allow easy reference and quick access to relevant information, and commercial statutes included allow a wide variety of practical problems to be addressed with confidence. Gault on Commercial Law is divided up into eight different subject areas, which contain an introduction to that area, as well as the relevant legislation and section-by-section commentary.

Reissued in February 2010 following a significant rewrite, Gault is now restructured to include new topics such as Agency and Bailment. Commentary is also provided on areas not previously covered, including Personal Property Securities and introductions to Commercial Contracts and E-Commerce Law. Introductory overviews on Competition Law and Banking and Guarantees are envisaged. Repealed legislation on important commercial law matters is also retained with commentary for ease of research.
