About this book

This book discusses doing business and making profit on the right side of the law. It explores the role of aligning business and legal strategies, and using the law as a powerful tool in making businesses successful. In this unique book, the author draws on his experience teaching future business leaders at the IIM Ahmedabad for more than a decade. Numerous case studies from across the globe and involving top-notch companies are discussed from both the business leadership and legal perspective, with takeaways included at the end. Intended for senior managers who would prefer to have the law as their friend, philosopher and guide, the book offers analyses of judgments from various courts, but mainly from the Supreme Court of India and the US Supreme Court, and provides judicial finality on several issues commonly faced by business leaders. As such, it serves as a valuable reference guide for senior business managers aspiring to take on top leadership positions.
