<p> The structure of the large, modern enterprise presents major jurisdictional obstacles for attorneys attempting to determine liability (either as plaintiff or defendant). <b>The Law of Corporate Groups: Jurisdiction, Practice, and Procedure</b> presents practical insights into how procedural law treats these legally independent but functionally integrated corporations. It helps you identify and navigate jurisdictional differences, providing complete analysis of unique issues—from piercing the corporate veil to current theories of enterprise law. <b>The Law of Corporate Groups: Jurisdiction, Practice and Procedure</b> delivers the latest insights into: </p> <ul> <li> The Emerging Law of Corporate Groups </li> <li> Corporate Groups and Relational Law </li> <li> Corporate Enterprises Linked by Contract, Not Stock Ownership </li> <li> The Larger Jurisprudential Framework of Enterprise Liability </li> <li> And More! </li> </ul> <p> <b>The Law of Corporate Groups: Jurisdiction, Practice, and Procedure</b> provides a thorough examination and analysis of the liability of parents and component parts of a corporate group (subsidiary & affiliate companies) across the full spectrum of the law: procedural and substantive, statutory and common law. And this one-of-a-kind resource also offers in-depth coverage of both statutory and case law (federal and state) discussing thousands of cases and providing detailed review of all major business regulatory areas. This single-volume treatise provides guidance on avoiding legal and procedural pitfalls under this new doctrine of “enterprise liability” by answering such questions as: </p> <ul> <li> When can jurisdiction over a subsidiary also confer jurisdiction over its parent or other subsidiaries? </li> <li> In an action against a parent or subsidiary, when can a party obtain discovery against the defendant’s non-party subsidiary or parent? </li> <li> When will the location of a parent or subsidiary be considered in determining whether there is diversity of citizenship for federal court jurisdiction in an action involving a subsidiary or parent company? </li> <li> When will a judgment against a non-party parent or subsidiary apply against its subsidiary or parent company? </li> </ul> <p> <b>The Law of Corporate Groups: Jurisdiction, Practice, and Procedure</b> provides the fullest and most insightful examination of the role of “piercing the veil” jurisprudence and the more modern doctrines of enterprise law. In particular, it illustrates the extent to which reliance on “piercing” as the sole governing standard has been consistently abandoned or supplemented. </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>
