This universally acknowledged work is of immense day-to-day value to the practitioner. The authors' analysis of all relevant statutes, plus thousands of cases and SEC administrative decisions and letters, definitively clarifies such questions as:
- When does a note fall within the definition of a "security?"
- How have the courts altered the express civil liability provisions of the federal securities laws?
- Can the SEC impose additional ten-day suspensions on trading without notice?
- Does scienter include reckless as well as intentional conduct?
- And countless others, so that you're almost sure to find coverage of the "small point" on which your case may turn.
