  • 66 mini case study problems
  • Core doctrinal concepts and contemporary issues, such as say-on-pay, latest shareholder proposal trends, director election bylaws, JOBS Act of 2012, advance notice bylaws (round two), and more
  • Comprehensive discussions on a wide range of planning challenges: choice-of entity, buy-sell agreements, employee protections, owner operational deal points, ethical challenges, shareholder debt, securities law exemptions, structuring business sales, director protections, controlling shareholder risks, hostile takeover bids, executive compensation, and more
  • Practical, understandable discussions on financial statements, fundamental financial concepts, business entity taxation, going public realties, bonds, drafting key organizational documents, business valuations, and more
  • Court opinions and statutory materials that eliminate the need for supplementary materials
  • Business literacy discussions

The book is supported by a teacher’s manual that provides answers to the case study problems, recaps court opinions, and explains how the book is used in a large class (90 students) to help develop analytical, writing, teamwork, and communication skills.
