Jackson Walker partner Byron F. Egan, one of the industry’s leading authorities on choosing and leveraging entities to do business, has released his fourth edition of EGAN ON ENTITIES: Corporations, Partnerships and Limited Liability Companies in Texas, a comprehensive treatise on corporate, partnership, and limited liability company law.
Bryon noted, “The newest edition is an expansion of prior editions. Legislatures in Texas and Delaware amended their business entity statutes, several that were subtle but yet significant, which sections of the book summarize.”
The Fourth Edition provides insightful analyses of changes to the Texas Business Organizations Code and Delaware business entity statutes enacted during recent legislative sessions in both states, as well as important case law developments. The new edition also includes an updated and expanded discussion of applicable federal and Texas tax laws, regulations, and interpretive case law; and Texas and Delaware cases addressing fiduciary duty and governance issues.
“EGAN ON ENTITIES: Corporations, Partnerships and Limited Liability Companies in Texas incorporates a profound understanding of the corporation, partnership and limited liability company laws governing entities doing business in Texas. The work admirably elucidates the intersection of the entity laws of Delaware and Texas, and should be a resource to all who advise businesses in Texas.” Said Myron T. Steele, senior counsel at Potter Anderson & Corroon LLP and Former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Delaware.
EGAN ON ENTITIES was recently cited in the Supreme Court of Texas opinion in Skeels v. Suder (see note 10 on page 7 and note 12 on pages 8): Skeels v. Suder No. 21-1014
The fourth edition of EGAN ON ENTITIES is available as a hardbound book or as an eBook through Lexis Nexis.
