Important changes to business entity law in Texas

The Texas Legislature made substantive changes to the state’s business entity laws in its 2017 legislative session, enacting or amending more than 75 sections, including the new subchapter on Public Benefit Corporations.

These and other changes to Texas business law are captured in the 2017 Edition of Texas Laws Governing Business Entities, Annotated. This resource contains up-to-date annotated business entity legislation for Texas, as well as other valuable features that make legal research faster and more efficient.

The 2017 Edition features all statutory changes that came out of the latest Texas legislative session, as well as new case annotations interpreting the law. You will find over 130 new case notes since the last edition, as well as six full-text Texas cases covering recent legal developments regarding liability for corporate obligations, franchise taxes, creation of a partnership, preferred stock and standing.

We have also included a summary of legislative activity prepared by noted attorney Byron Egan of Jackson Walker L.L.P., as well as his analysis of Enterprise Products Partners, L.P. v. Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. and the impact of the case on joint ventures.

The companion CD-ROM contains more than 70 recently updated forms for incorporation/formation, qualification, mergers, dissolution, and name reservation for all Texas entity types. A listing of forms and contact information for Texas’s Division of Revenue, Business Services, can be found in the book’s appendix.

The book’s expansive index, sequential pagination, and page tabs make finding the information you need quicker and easier, while larger pages and a clean typeface enhance readability. Our annotated statutory collections are also available as e-books and are part of the LexisNexis Digital Library.
