Description


Business Organizations for Paralegals thoroughly covers all the various types of business organizations, providing a solid and up-to-the minute understanding of each entity. There is more in-depth treatment of Limited Liability Partnerships and Limited Liability Companies than in any other text, and an entire chapter is devoted to securities regulation. Designed for the paralegal student, Business Organizations for Paralegals relies on a clear and direct presentation, and each chapter includes features--both conventional and Internet-based--that help students prepare for real-life paralegal work.

The massively revised Sixth Edition features new and updated charts demonstrating key principles of business organizations. The content reflects major developments such as the new social enterprises that combine profit-making with social good; the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010; new trends in corporate governance; and the impact of new algorithmic or high-frequency trading of stocks as well as the part it may have played in the Wall Street ""flash crash"" of 2010. Proposed revisions to securities regulations that would make raising capital easier for smaller companies (e.g. crowdfunding) is covered as well as the trend toward ""reverse mergers"" to avoid regulatory oversight. Other new topics include the continuing effect of the 2008 financial crisis, new constituency statutes, and new DB(k) retirement plans.
