Hunton & Williams LLP is pleased to announce LexisNexis has released the fourth edition of Goolsby on Virginia Corporations. Due to a number of significant developments in corporation law, this edition includes substantial changes from the third edition, published in 2008.
While there have been significant changes in Virginia’s corporate code, many of the major changes addressed in the fourth edition have occurred at the national level, where corporate governance has become a hot topic. These changes reflect the continuing erosion of the traditional view that the rules of corporate governance were the sole province of the state of incorporation. “Trying to address those varied and important developments has made the fourth edition significantly more challenging. While the focus continues to be on Virginia corporate law, in the rapidly changing corporate governance arena, it is harder to view that law in isolation,” said Allen Goolsby.
In addition to developments at the federal level, developments in other states have taken on greater importance for Virginia corporations. With that thought in mind, in the fourth edition, Goolsby focuses significantly greater attention on court decisions in other jurisdictions, especially recent Delaware court decisions and changes in the Delaware corporate code.
Goolsby, a senior partner with the firm’s Richmond office, focuses his practice on corporate law, including corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, and securities and finance. He was listed in Best Lawyers in America for Corporate, M&A, and Securities Law and in Who’s Who Legal–Corporate Governance; he was named Best Lawyers’ 2009 Richmond Corporate Lawyer of the Year and named in The International Who’s Who of Corporate Governance Lawyers 2010 and in The International Who’s Who of Corporate Governance Lawyers 2011; and was listed in Chambers USA, America’s Leading Lawyers for Business (Corporate/M&A), 2010.
