Maryland Corporation Law is the only current treatise covering all aspects of Maryland corporation law and practice, providing authoritative guidance to the statutes, legislative history, and relevant cases, and is frequently cited by judges and lawyers as the authoritative source in the field. More New York Stock Exchange-listed companies are formed under Maryland law than any state except Delaware.

This authoritative volume gives subscribers a thorough background to the Maryland General Corporation Law (The 'MGCL'), including: formation of a corporation; the conduct of a corporation's internal affairs; liability and protection of directors and officers;voting and other rights of stockholders; mergers; charter amendments; and dissolution of a corporation. Maryland Corporation Law also discusses derivative actions, corporate opportunity, successor liability and takeover defenses. In addition, there is a separate chapter devoted exclusively to Maryland real estate investment trusts.

Maryland Corporation Law also provides the complete up-to-date text of the MGCL and related statutes, and includes a forms section, prepared by the author, containing many Maryland specific forms. Recent additions include topics such as:

  • Corporations - Distributions, Mergers, Appraisal Rights and Articles Supplementary
  • Investment Companies - Series Funds, Transfer of Assets
  • Directors and Stockholders - Meetings, Notices, and Consents
  • A newly added chapter on Maryland business trusts
  • Recent cases decided by the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and the United States District Court for the District of Maryland
