    State Bar CLE Books: Helping You Meet the Needs of Business Clients

    To help you provide more efficient and effective service to your business clients, consider adding these resources to your practice library.

    LLCs and LLPs: A Wisconsin Handbook will help you advise clients on using LLCs and LLPs in Wisconsin. The revised handbook reflects new developments such as the default pass-through tax treatment of LLCs and LLPs under the "check-the-box" regulations, the authorization of single-member LLCs (SMLLCs), and the rule permitting Wisconsin attorneys to use LLCs and LLPs in their practices. In addition, you'll find detailed discussions of the choice of an appropriate business entity, organization of the business, business formalities, and operational and tax issues.

    An entire chapter is devoted to annotated forms, including three LLC operating agreements, two SMLLC member agreements, and an LLP partnership agreement. The book includes a CD-ROM of customizable forms.

    Binder and CD-ROM; 515+ pp.; 3rd ed. 2007 (includes 2008 supplement). $185 for members; $235 for nonmembers.

    Organizing a Wisconsin Business Corporation provides all the essential forms for incorporating a business, including articles of incorporation, bylaws, share certificates, minutes of organizational meetings, and subscription agreements. The forms are annotated with comments that explain the sample form language, review the statutory requirements, and describe alternative provisions. Standard articles of incorporation and bylaws appear in short and long form to accommodate corporations of varying complexity. Guidance is given on modifying the standard articles and bylaws for statutory close corporations, S corporations, and service corporations. A separate chapter addresses annual reports, annual and special meetings, and the use of consent resolutions. The book includes a CD-ROM with a complete set of unannotated forms.

    Binder and CD-ROM; 496 pp.; 3rd ed. 2008. $185 for members; $235 for nonmembers.

    Business Organizations (Wisconsin Business Advisor Series, vol. 7) discusses all available Wisconsin business organization formats, including the benefits and drawbacks of each format, all in one indexed and solidly researched book. Included is discussion of ways that Wisconsin taxes businesses _ or doesn't tax them _ a topic not covered in any other State Bar of Wisconsin CLE book.

    The book is packed with relevant case law, time-saving practice tips, checklists, cautions, caveats, sample language, and practice guides. Citation is easy with a table of cases, a table of statutes, regulations, and rules, plus a complete index.

    Paperback; 629 pp.; 2006 (includes 2008 supplement). $129 for members; $165 for nonmembers.

    For more help with business law topics, take a look at the other nine titles in the Wisconsin Business Advisor Series. The unique WBA series provides a comprehensive overview of issues that often arise in the course of advising business clients. That's because in developing the series, members of the Business Law Section of the State Bar of Wisconsin and the editors at State Bar CLE Books identified areas of particular importance to business clients and their advisors. So the series is written by business lawyers, for business lawyers. Online and CD versions are also available.
