Like its predecessors, the Eighth Edition of this casebook is based on the proposition that the best approach to teaching corporation law is to present students with a variety of problems that practitioners face, together with legal material relevant to their solution. This is supplemented with readings designed to give the student an understanding of the conceptual and policy issues that are influencing the evolution of the law. The first half of the book introduces basic business concepts essential to understanding business law including risk, valuation, and accounting. It presents problems relating to corporate formation, financing, and organization; the role of the corporation in society; the role of the corporate lawyer; and piercing the corporate veil. The second half of the book is devoted primarily to an analysis of fiduciary duties. It includes much new material dealing with the rapidly-evolving area of corporate governance, including executive compensation, shareholder voting, and the relationship between state and federal corporate and securities laws. Recognizing its growing importance as the preferred organizational form for many businesses, the Eighth Edition adds new material dealing with the limited liability company.

The Ninth Edition continues the basic approach of its predecessors: using problems as a vehicle for discussing cases and textual material to develop an understanding of the law of business enterprises and the policy issues that influence its evolution. The new edition adds significant new material on agency, partnerships and LLCs to enable its use in a course in Business Associations. It is divided into four parts: Part I introduces the different types of entity and their essential features, including legal personality and limited liability; Part II is devoted to closely-held entities; Part III deals with accounting, finance, and formation of enterprises; and Part IV focuses on the publicly held corporation.

This title covers the law of business associations for introductory courses, including agency, general partnerships, closely held corporations, publicly held corporations, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships, and limited liability companies. The material on the unincorporated business forms has been revised, updated, and expanded to reflect the centrality of these forms of business organization in modern law practice and the economy generally. Among other state and model statutes, the Uniform LLC Act (2013), the Uniform Partnership Act (2013), the Uniform Limited Partnership Act (2013), the Third Restatement of Agency (2006), and the Model Business Corporation Act (2016) are discussed and cited.

This is sill the only business organizations casebook to focus on closely held businesses, including agency, general partnerships, close corporations, limited partnerships, limited liability partnerships, limited liability companies, and other hybrid entities. Numerous problems throughout the casebook allow students to apply legal principles to new fact situations. The principal change in the new edition has to do with the LLC chapter, which now focuses on the most recent uniform LLC Act (as well as Delaware law). Everything else has been brought brought up to date. This includes material on the Model Business Corporation Act (which now speaks as of December 2010), Delaware law (which includes corporations, limited partnerships, and limited liability companies), and federal securities law (included in the public corporation supplement).

This book is a multipurpose text that can be used in any class with a focus on comparative legal systems for corporations, taught in the U.S. or abroad. It contains cases, statutes, analysis and readings, the majority of which are from foreign jurisdictions. It also has extensive notes and questions. The focus is primarily on the U.S., U.K., major European continental civil law systems (France, Germany, Italy) and European Union law, and Japan; with references to other jurisdictions such as China, India and Brazil. In addition to law schools, the book may also appeal to non-law school professors of business administration, economics, and political science. In setting out to produce a casebook to meet the needs of students in different legal systems and on both introductory and advanced courses, make a contribution to scholarly debates and address practical and policy concerns, the authors set themselves ambitious goals, which they have amply achieved. This methodologically rigorous, insightful and stimulating book is rich in technical content but details are never allowed to obscure the main questions. The distinguished authors wear their scholarship lightly and the book is written in an admirably clear and accessible style. This book is a major addition to the growing literature on comparative corporate law and it is destined to shape the way we think about and teach the subject. Eilís Ferran, Professor of Company and Securities Law, Faculty of Law, University of Cambridge Corporate law rules vary considerably around the world, and there is much that students of corporate law can learn from a comparative analysis of how different systems deal with similar problems. This casebook, co-authored by a group of experts with a rich set of perspectives, is thus a valuable and welcome addition to the literature. Lucian A. Bebchuk, Professor of Law, Economics and Finance, Director, Program on Corporate Governance, Harvard Law School This excellent book is a welcome addition to the still relatively sparse comparative corporate law literature. It is a wonderful teaching resource and a useful reference for the scholar. Tan Cheng Han, Professor of Law and Chairman, Centre for Law & Business, Faculty of Law, National University of Singapore [Comparative Corporate Law by Ventoruzzo and others] is both comprehensive and readily understandable. I think it will be a significant addition to both the literature and teaching material on comparative corporate governance. Martin Lipton, Founding Partner, Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz In-house counsels of firms operating internationally will find the book a practical and useful tool. Your own corporate issues aren't so unique after all, learning how others have approached theirs, across the world, is both instructive and refreshing, a must read! Antonino Cusimano, General Counsel and Secretary to the Board of Directors, Telecom Italia The materials collected and translated in English are precious and fascinating for a broad and international audience. The richness of the book is not, however, only in the materials carefully selected and sewn together, but also in the stitches that fasten them: The introductions, notes and questions, economic insights and empirical data that connect the materials allow readers to consider the causes and consequences of different legal rules in different systems, and compare different regulatory strategies. Viviane Muller Prado, Professor of Corporate Law, Escloa de Direito, Fundação Getulio Vargas, Sao Paulo, Brazil This book proves not only that corporate law is global, but also that a global approach is essential in order to understand the laws of different countries and how they interact. The book, innovative in both methodology and contents, will be indispensable for anyone who studies and practices corporate la

Understanding Corporate Law is designed to assist students by offering a clear and comprehensive treatment of key concepts in corporate law. It is a popular study guide for students and has been used by professors to supplement their casebook or as recommended reading. Significant business, economic, and policy issues are highlighted in connection with a thorough analysis of the important cases and statutory provisions used in the study of corporations. It includes the major theoretical approaches used in current corporate law literature. In each chapter, the authors identify important policies and discuss the relationship of the law as it has developed to those policies. Statutory issues are covered under both the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware and the Revised Model Business Corporation Act. Understanding Corporate Law discusses developing case law including the Delaware courts' use of good faith in fiduciary duty cases. The book also reflects the corporate governance issues raised by the corporate scandals and the passage of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. A section of Chapter 5 deals generally with that Act, but its impact is also covered in relevant sections throughout the book. This Understanding treatise is designed to be used in conjunction with all of the major corporate law casebooks.
