Designed to guide counsel through most of the problems encountered in advising the board of directors, including composition of the board; election, resignation, and removal of directors; meetings of the board; compensation; and more.
Business Law Monographs, Counseling the Board of Directors, has been written to guide counsel through most of the problems he or she will encounter in serving the board of directors.
The first chapter of the Text segment discusses the legal standards for actions by directors. Although general statements about the legal standards defining directors' duties will not solve specific problems, no problem can be analyzed and solved without reference to these standards. To solve specific problems, corporate counsel should always base his or her recommendation upon the statements of directors' duties found in the case law of the jurisdiction in which the corporation is incorporated, in order to determine whether the proposed course of action comes within the scope of permitted action. The monograph will attempt to raise the questions which arise most often and suggest reasoned approaches to their solution.
Chapters 2 through 7 pertain to overall organization of the board of directors. Topics include composition of the board, organization of the board, election of directors, removal and resignation of directors, meetings of the board and its committees, and compensation of directors.
Chapters 8 through 12 discuss the functioning of the board; the responsibilities of the Chairman, Secretary, and committees of the board, and the directors' duties with regard to mergers, acquisitions, dividends and reports required by the SEC.
The Forms segment of the monograph includes the forms and sample materials needed to guide or assist counsel in handling the various problems and transactions discussed in the Text.
Also available as part of the complete 38-volume set entitled Business Law Monographs.
