Legislative Summaries analyze the effect of new sections and changes in the law for practitioners, while blackline amendment notes after each changed section pinpoint the exact additions and deletions made by the Legislature.

The Table of New Annotations and change bars highlight over 50 new case notes added since the last edition. In addition, we have included four full-text cases discussing the latest legal developments regarding corporate answers to civil complaints, alter ego doctrine, derivative actions, and cryptocurrency.

Access forms and fees
Readers can directly access over 190 ready-to-fill forms for incorporation/formation, qualification, mergers, dissolution, name reservation and other tasks for all entity types directly available via our Online Download Center.
