Interesting Reads of the Week

Some interesting legal reads for the week of June 23, 2014:

  • DealBook’s Steven M. Davidoff on mergers motivated by the inversion tax loophole, providing for tax savings by reincorporation abroad.
  • A CEO writes in Forbes about the benefits of having standing meetings (standing as in the participants aren’t sitting).  I find that it’s beneficial to stand up frequently, but if I stand up for too long, it becomes uncomfortable.
  • Compliance Week reports on a study showing that mistakes in XBRL filings (standardized financial data reporting by public companies) are common.
