Far away, across the field
cave verba magicae
There are some categories of magic words that it is just not worth trying to improve, however leaden they appear:
- Credit mitigation provisions: security rights, guarantees, letters of credit, close-out netting terms. They tend, in any case, not to be wildly controversial (for exactly this reason: they are sacred lore. Legal eagles respect and fear them too much to fiddle with them).
- Deeds, particularly where they relate to real estate, about the legal aspects of which the JC knows and cares little.
- ERISA plans
