Seasoned Texas attorney Byron Egan knows that selecting the right entity—and the right jurisdiction—can make all the difference in the execution and long-term success of a complex business transaction. Egan, a partner in the Dallas offices of Jackson Walker, has spent his career carefully considering the merits of different business entities and jurisdictions, and counseling clients on the best choice.
That experience and expertise are captured in Egan on Entities, a comprehensive treatise that explores corporations, partnerships and Limited Liability Companies in Texas. CSC is excited to welcome this authoritative work as the newest addition to our Corporate Library Collection.
Egan on Entities combines scholarly analysis and practical guidance on business entity law to provide attorneys, C-suite executives, students and other business and legal professionals with a comprehensive resource for understanding business entities in Texas, regardless of whether they are formed in Texas, Delaware, or another jurisdiction.
The treatise provides hands-on guidance for dealing with the formation, governance, sale, and termination of entities, drawing on the author’s more than forty years of advising clients, helping to draft Texas entity statutes, and teaching at many continuing legal education courses. Egan also incorporates in-depth analysis of adjudicated cases and legal literature to further explain which entity form is best for a particular situation. Close attention is paid to corporate governance matters, and the consequences of failures in corporate governance.
Egan’s practice comprises corporate, partnership, securities, mergers and acquisitions, and financing, and he is a frequent author and lecturer regarding M&A, governance of corporations, partnerships and limited liability companies, securities laws, and financing techniques. He has been listed in “The Best Lawyers in America under Corporate, M&A or Securities Law” for over 20 years. In addition to the many other awards he has received, Egan has won the Burton Award for distinguished legal writing four times and his paper entitled Director Duties: Process and Proof received the Franklin Jones Outstanding CLE Article Award.
The First Edition of Egan on Entities is now available as an ebook, compatible with dedicated e-reader devices, computers, tablets and smartphones that use e-reader software or applications. The all-new second edition addressing legislative updates from the 2017 session in Texas and Delaware, will be available in print and electronic format later this spring.
“Egan on Entities: Corporations, Partnerships and Limited Liability Companies in Texas incorporates a profound understanding of the corporation, partnership and limited liability company laws governing entities doing business in Texas. The work admirably elucidates the intersection of the entity laws of Delaware and Texas, and should be a resource to all who advise businesses in Texas.”
