  • Description

    Business Organizations Law in Focus offers a comprehensive, practiceoriented approach to the legal and practical aspects of business organizations. By providing real world scenarios throughout, the text gives students numerous opportunities to apply what they learn and solidify their understanding of important concepts. Clear explanatory text, case previews, and case follow-ups further clarify business principles and aid in student understanding. This text focuses on key attributes, advantages, and disadvantages of each form of business organization, including partnerships, limited liability companies, and corporations. In addition, it also addresses issues arising under the federal securities laws, including reforms associated with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Among other “hot” topics are “spotlight” sections, which address corporate inversions, start-up “unicorns,” and insider trading.
