August 25, 2016 | Insights

Byron EganEGAN ON ENTITIES: Corporations, Partnerships and Limited Liability Companies in Texas was developed as a way to collect experiences in dealing with the formation, governance, sale, and termination of entities.

The treatise draws on Byron F. Egan’s experience evaluating which form of entity would be better for any particular situation and advising clients on the reasons behind those choices. It also draws on the experiences of others, as shown in adjudicated cases and legal literature. A business today can be organized as a corporation, partnership or limited liability company.

Each of these forms of business entity has its own characteristics which affect those who own the entity and those who deal with it. Those characteristics determine how the respective entities are formed, governed, financed and sold.

EGAN ON ENTITIES combines scholarly analysis and practical guidance on business entity law in a manner that will aid legal practitioners, company executives, students, and others in understanding business entities in Texas, whether formed in Texas or Delaware, and in addressing related complexities that inevitably arise in navigating the critical decisions that must be made with respect to such entities.

“EGAN ON ENTITIES: Corporations, Partnerships and Limited Liability Companies in Texas is a comprehensive treatise on corporate, partnership and limited liability company law that belongs in the library of every academic institution, corporate legal department and law firm.”
– Charles W. Matthews, Vice President and General Counsel (Ret.), Exxon Mobil Corporation
