Representing Corporate Officers, Directors, Managers, and Trustees, Second Edition, by Marc J. Lane, is a guide to the practical aspects of corporate governance for attorneys, officers, directors, managers, and trustees. The introduction of new legislation, rules, and standards by governmental bodies and society in the wake of recent corporate and accounting scandals has lead to a focus upon the responsibilities and liabilities of directors, officers, managers, and trustees. A host of new hurdles have arisen. Increased SEC oversight, new NYSE and NASDAQ listing standards, new fiduciary and other duties, and new criminal penalties have changed the landscape for those who control corporation and have cast new meaning unto preexisting law.
The author’s careful examination of the terrain of the current business world with an experienced legal eye identifies these and other new landmarks of law for the busy director or officer. By logically laying out the new steps to safe corporate governance, the cases, tables, and checklists will comfort the veteran and neophyte alike.
