Rob Lang publishes e-book on corporate governance litigation

March 18, 2013

Business litigation partner Rob Lang has published an e-book detailing common issues in corporate governance litigation. The e-book, “Corporate Governance Issues from a Litigator’s Perspective,” is published by ExecSense, the world’s largest publisher of professional webinars, podcasts and e-books.

As Lang details in the book, a strong knowledge of corporate governance issues is critical for any business owner or executive looking to form a new entity, explore a joint venture or buy a stake in a privately-held company. Should executives fail to consider these issues, Lang writes, they risk setting off hidden corporate governance “time bombs” when disputes arise.

Some of the issues covered in the e-book include:

  • Corporate records demands
  • Deadlock
  • Valuation
  • Essential elements of corporate governance agreements
  • The role of accountants and attorneys
  • Potential conflicts of interest

Lang has helped clients resolve business disputes for two decades. He has guided individuals and privately- and publically-held companies through disputes involving trusts and estates, employees and employment contracts, real estate, intellectual property, and manufacturing contracts. Lang has developed a special focus on disputes between business partners, including those centering on governance, valuation, fiduciary and other issues commonly known as “business divorce.” Lang’s successful business dispute results have been covered by the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago Tribune, Crain's Chicago Business, and the Gary Post-Tribune. He also counsels clients on how to best avoid disputes through strategic preemptive measures and the thoughtful drafting of shareholder, operating and partnership agreements.
