A Note From the Issue Editor
This month’s issue of Nevada Lawyer focuses primarily on legal considerations to keep in mind when advising entities – such as corporations, limited liabilities companies and partnerships – and their owners. Even if you do not practice in the field of corporate law, you likely represent clients who either conduct business or own assets through entities. Thus, an understanding of the issues which can pop up in corporate law is valuable to any lawyer’s practice. William H. Stoddard, Jr.’s article provides an important refresher regarding Nevada’s alter ego doctrine, while noting the importance of detrimental reliance by the person seeking to set aside the corporate veil. Be sure to check out Nicole M. Vance’s tips on drafting the perfect buy-sell agreement. Bahar A. Schippel and Zachary E. Redman’s article regarding series LLCs provides useful insight into an often misunderstood area of Nevada law, and provides a head’s-up on clarification to come from the IRS. This article is accompanied by a quiz (on page 19), through which readers may earn one CLE credit. In this month’s Young Lawyer’s Column, in what could be seen as a sign of the times, Catherine Anne Reichenberg provides guidance on entity formation for new attorneys seeking to start their own practices. Lastly, be sure to check out Patrick Owen King’s Back Story, a favorable review of Antonin Scalia and Bryan Garner’s Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts. It might just be the perfect stocking stuffer for the “textualist” in your life. Thanks to all of our contributing authors, and Happy Holidays to all! ERIN BARNETT is an attorney at Marquis Aurbach Coffing in Las Vegas, practicing primarily in the areas of real estate transactional and corporate law. She can be reached at
