Research Handbook on Partnerships, LLCs and Alternative Forms of Business Organizations

Research Handbook on Partnerships, LLCs and Alternative
Forms of Business Organizations


      Professors Robert W. Hillman and Mark J. Loewenstein have edited a just-released book, Research Handbook on Partnerships, LLCs and Alternative Forms of Business Organizations  (Edward Elgar Publishing).  They generously invited me to submit a chapter, it on fiduciary duties upon dissolution of an unincorporated entity; in doing so I was invited to box well above my weight class.  The book provides guidance from some of the best thinkers in the field.  The chapters and their respective authors are as follows:
