Managers and the Legal Environment: Strategies for the 21st Century / Edition 6

The text is designed as a "hands-on," transactional guide for future and current business managers, including entrepreneurs. It provides a broad and a detailed understanding of how law impacts daily management decisions and business strategies. No manager operating in he complex and ever-changing global environment of the late 1990s and the early 21st century can compete successfully without this knowledge. The topics covered in Managers and the Legal Environment demonstrate its focus on meeting the needs of business managers. The text covers not only such essential legal topics as agency, contracts, torts, criminal law, antitrust, and employment law, but also others of vital concern to business managers, such as intellectual property, lending transactions, and securities offerings, as well as international business transactions.
