This text organizes cases over four periods: a 25-year period from 1890 to 1914, in which most of today's issues were foreshadowed; a 25-year period from 1915 to 1939, in which the 'rule of reason' forced courts to investigate the actual consequences of business practices; a 35-year period from 1940 to 1975, in which the per se rule and industry concentration provided the predominant models for analysis; and the modern period of now almost 40 years, which is a synthesis of the second and third periods. The new Fifth Edition retains enough of the first three periods to provide important intellectual and economic context, but it expands upon, even more fully, the recent developments of antitrust policy. All major Supreme Court authority is covered, including the 2013 Actavis 'reverse payments' and Phoebe Putney 'hospital regulation' cases, as well as the 2010 Merger Guidelines and developments in lower court treatment of tying, bundled pricing and mergers.

The Ethics of Representing Organizations is divided into two sections: The first half of the book explores professional responsibility issues from the perspective of the lawyer's duty to represent clients zealously within the bounds of the law. It examines the fiduciary and other ethical duties lawyers owe to their clients in the context of representing legal fictions, which includes the identification of an entity client, followed by what the authors call "the five C's," or fiduciary duties owed clients: competence, communication, client control, confidentiality, and conflict resolution. The authors then detail the legal bounds beyond which lawyers cannot pass in representing clients, paying careful attention to crimes and frauds, as well as duties imposed by tribunals and obligations of fairness to third parties. This section concludes with an examination of the various legal remedies clients and third parties may seek for breaches of lawyer obligations, including professional discipline, malpractice, disqualification, fee forfeiture, procedural sanctions and criminal accountability. The second half of the book is devoted to the ethical problems that arise in particular organizational settings. Publicly held companies, not for profits, unincorporated associations, partnerships and business start-ups all raise their own special ethical dilemmas, and each is considered in turn. Finally, the authors offer a checklist of "do's and don't's," special practice-oriented pointers that a lawyer for any organization should keep in mind. On a stylistic note, the approach of the book is relatively informal-in comparison to a standard legal treatise-and uses a question-and-answer format designed to make the book as practical, accessible and informative as possible. That said, ample footnotes provide authority where appropriate and lead the reader to suggestions for more in-depth study.
