We wrote the book on Nevada Corporate Law
The second edition of this unique reference book was released last year, and updates case law and statutory authority that have amended corporate law in Nevada.
In what has been called “a valuable resource….and an important contribution to this field,” Bishop & Zucker is a significant reference for law firms and libraries across the U.S. The treatise has been cited by practitioners in motions and briefs as the authority on Nevada corporate law and in Nevada Supreme Court case law. Originally authored in 1993 by Keith Bishop of Allen Matkins, it was revised in 2011 with the combined efforts of Lionel Sawyer & Collins, led by Business Law Department chair Jeff Zucker, and Bishop. Other attorneys from the Firm contributed to the text under the guidance of the book’s editorial board, Colleen Dolan, Pearl Gallagher, and Mark Gardberg of the Business Law Department.
