SAN DIEGO/PITTSBURGH/WASHINGTON, DC – July 10, 2006 – Julie E. McGuire and Thomas C. Welshonce, together with ten other North American members of the Center for International Legal Studies (CILS), are co-authors of the 2006 update to Legal Aspects of Doing Business in North America. 

Doing Business provides a comprehensive overview of both U.S. and Canadian federal laws, with specific chapters focused on 42 of the American states and all of the Canadian provinces and territories (excluding Nunavut).  Doing Business topics include how to form a corporation, tax laws, acquisition of real estate, arbitrations, employer-employee relations, protection of intellectual property and more.  The 3-volume set is edited by Christian Campbell of CILS in Salzburg, Austria. 

McGuire and Welshonce authored the new chapter for Pennsylvania on behalf of Hull McGuire.  Other firms which co-authored chapters include Clifford Chance (New York chapter), Baker & McKenzie (Texas chapter) and Barnes & Thornburg (Indiana chapter).

First published in 1988, Legal Aspects of Doing Business in North America is a CILS International Business Series publication by Yorkhill Law Publishing, an arm of the Center for International Legal Studies, based in Salzburg and founded in 1976.  The book can be purchased through Yorkhill’s website.

Doing Business should appeal to a wide-ranging audience, from small start-up businesses to experienced international corporate lawyers,” said Julie McGuire, a Hull McGuire shareholder and founder.  “Tom Welshonce and I worked closely with the CILS to help provide a simple and easy-to-use tool for either a general counsel or global business person.”
