Deciphers the complex substantive and procedural laws surrounding U.S. business entities today. Focusing on corporations, sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability partnerships, and limited liability entities, the text explains the law and the theory behind the law while providing practical information that the paralegal can use on the job. Financial structures, securities regulations, mergers, and bankruptcy round out the legal discussions, along with special attention paid to the Uniform Acts and Model Business Corporation Act as revised through 2007, which is the basis for most state business corporation acts in the United States. Special features include cites for state statutes, excerpted cases, sample documents, paralegal profiles, chapter summaries, end-of-chapter exercises, practical advice, and much more.
