The Accountant's Guide to Corporation, Partnership, and Agency Law.

This book contains a summary of the laws that govern business associations and are designed to help accountants spot potential problems their clients may encounter. The author, an attorney and environmental consultant, divided the material into three parts: corporations, partnerships and agencies. Each begins with a discussion and explanation of applicable legal terminology, followed by the steps necessary to create the type of entity, the duties and responsibilities of officers and other relevant matters. The dissolution of each type of business also receives coverage. This material provides a good refresher course on the basics of business law for the busy practitoner.
