Product Description

This Law In A Nutshell: Business Structures is written as a review for students taking the first course in business organizations. The authors emphasize explanation, focusing on explaining the basic concepts covered in class, providing a business and practice context for those concepts, and showing how the concepts are consistent, and sometimes inconsistent with each other. The book is organized around the life cycle of a business, beginning with the choice of business structure, ending with the choices of possible "end-games" for the business and its owners, and covering the common legal issues in running and growing a business.

Table of Contents includes:
What Does the Basic Business Course in Law School (and This Book) Cover?;
How Do You Select the Best Business Structure for a Particular Business?;
How Are the Various Business Structures Formed?;
What Are the Limits of Limited Liability;
