Content Realignment Notice: Business Organizations and Corporation Law Libraries now separate practice areas on IntelliConnect

In order to facilitate a more efficient research experience, Corporations and Business Organizations Law content has become two separate practice area nodes on IntelliConnect. Now, all of your LLC, partnership and "S" Corporation resources can be found under the "Business Organizations" node, and your entire C" Corporation formation and corporate governance materials are found under "Corporation Law" on the browse tree.

Please note that due to the changes in the practice area listings, some updating to your intranet links may be required. In addition, you may need to update any customized Practice Area sets by creating a new set for the Business Organizations content and a separate one for the Corporation Law content or selecting both under one Practice Area set.

NEW Business Organizations Library with tax planning content

The new Business Organizations Library includes all of the relevant tax content as a complement to the analytic treatises. For existing subscribers to the Business Organizations library you can either migrate over to the NEW Business Organizations library or take advantage of the Tax Planning Add-on for existing subscribers. Either way you will receive the same additional content including the Limited Liability Company guide, Partnership Tax Planning and Practice and S Corporations guide plus seven practice tools including decision trees and Smart Charts. This content complements the analytic treatises in the current library including Bromberg & Ribstein on Partnership and Drafting Limited Liability Company Operating Agreements by John Cunningham.
