MMM Partners Pen Chapters for Aspatore Books; Topics Include Tax Law, International Transactions

09.17.2008

Aspatore Books, which produces works of interest to C- level executives, has published chapters written by two partners at Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP.

Heath Linsky authored a chapter on the regulatory aspects of international deals in a just-released book, while Chuck Beaudrot wrote a chapter on tax law in a volume published in July. Both works are part of Aspatore’s “Inside the Minds” series.

Linsky wrote a chapter titled “The Securities and Exchange Commission’s Approach to Cross-Border Transactions.” The chapter includes a history of foreign- owned companies listing on U.S. stock exchanges and discusses the impact of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. The authors further analyze new SEC rule-making proposals that could have a significant impact on issuers, as well as their shareholders. The chapter appeared in a book published this month called Common Issues in Securities Law: Leading Lawyers on Managing Client Expectations, Evaluating Securities Investigations, and Identifying Key Issues in U.S. Securities Law.

Beaudrot’s chapter, “Mega Trends and Current Issues in the Tax World,” appears in Common Issues in Tax Law: Leading Lawyers on Handling Tax Audits, Executing Tax Appeals and Monitoring Client Tax Compliance. His chapter details the difficulty of complying with increasingly complex statutes and the fact that the government now expects accountants and tax attorneys to essentially act as compliance officers. The chapter also offers practical advice for handling IRS audits and controversies.

Aspatore Books are written exclusively by top lawyers and C-Level executives. The publisher produces titles conceived to have a direct financial impact on the reader’s business objectives. For more information, or to order a book, visit www.Aspatore.com or call 1-866-ASPATORE.
