and analyze financial transactions and
deals that are at the heart of most legal
matters? MBA Concepts for Lawyers is
an answer to the busy lawyer’s prayer!

of Financial Reform
  Your clients are more involved in
advanced aspects of capital markets
– with implications for their lives today,
through retirement, and even for
their estates. Your role as counselor
demands a thorough understanding of
these markets, to compete effectively
in a modern legal practice and to
provide the sound advice that clients
expect and deserve.
  Corporate clients increasingly face
vigorous scrutiny from shareholders,
the press, and regulators. Your
understanding of how business
works — and how corporate stability
and management effectiveness are
measured and reported — are vital to
providing effective representation.
  This a one-day crash course in
understanding the legal impact of
business operations on your individual
and corporate clients, providing
important insights into their health,
value and future stability. Edward S. Adams
