New PA collaborative law act provides alternative for small business dispute resolution


The Pennsylvania General Assembly enacted the Collaborative Law Act during its 2018 session. Although primarily designed as an alternative to litigation in divorce proceedings, collaborative law has also been touted as an alternative for dispute resolution for owners of closely-held businesses. This new law has been captured in the 2019 Edition of CSC’s Pennsylvania Laws Governing Business Entities Annotated.

The 2019 Edition provides business and legal professionals working with Pennsylvania entities the most up-to-date laws and the latest case decisions that they can use to effectively advise their companies and serve clients.

 The newly updated edition includes over 36 new case notes from state and federal court decisions interpreting Pennsylvania business law. There are also five full-text cases from the past year highlighting recent legal developments concerning formation of a partnership, nonprofit corporations, duty of loyalty, derivative actions, and piercing the corporate veil.

 The companion CD-ROM contains over 100 Pennsylvania forms for incorporation/formation, qualification, mergers, dissolution, and name reservation for all entity types. A listing of forms and contact information for the Pennsylvania Corporations Bureau can be found in the Appendix.

 Pennsylvania Laws Governing Business Entities is available as a softbound book or as an ebook, compatible with dedicated e-reader devices, computers, tablets and smartphones that use e-reader software or applications. It is also available on the LexisNexis Digital Library.
