Featuring model sample opinions, PLI’s Legal Opinions in Business Transactions provides the knowledge, tools, and experienced counsel that enable you to craft rock-solid third-party opinion letters more easily and economically.
Referring to effective opinion guidelines developed through custom and approved by the TriBar Opinion Committee and the ABA, this practical, plain-English resource helps you master the opinion process by giving you a thorough understanding of the rights, obligations, and expectations of opinion givers, preparers, and recipients; the purpose, initiation, structure, terms, review, timing, delivery, and updating of third-party opinion letters, including how the law, facts, documents, exceptions, and assumptions are integrated; the function and components of interrelated and supporting opinions that combine to create opinion letters; and potential liabilities triggered by flaws in opinion letters, including pitfalls for opinion givers, preparers, and recipients.
Included is a new chapter for inexperienced attorneys, which provides a succinct overview of the principles, players, and procedures involved in creating opinion letters.
Updated annually or as needed, Legal Opinions in Business Transactions is an important working tool for every attorney who works with legal opinions.
