This book fills a major gap in the literature for professional accountants by offering a comprehensive discussion of the law concerning the three major types of business associations: corporations, partnerships, and agencies. As Wolf notes at the outset, accountants must have adequate knowledge of the laws governing business associations if they are to successfully perform professional services for their clients--the failure to spot potential legal problems can often spell disaster for a particular business. Wolf offers a current, accurate, in-depth treatment of the laws of business association in one logically organized source, specifically written to address the needs and concerns of accounting professionals.
Following an introduction, the volume is divided into three major sections each dealing with a specific type of business association. For each, Wolf draws on the relevant federal and state laws, uniform laws, common law, and judicial decisions to present a clear picture of significant issues. Section One deals with laws involving management, shareholder's rights, corporate financial structure, mergers and acquisitions, securities regulation, and dissolution. In the section devoted to partnerships, separate chapters address partnership formation, property, rights and liabilities of partners, termination, and limited partnerships. The final section covers agency creation, duties, liabilities, and termination. Taken as whole, this volume represents an important addition to the professional literature available to accountants in both corporate and private practice.
