How to solve a business law case study?
Business laws govern the rules of conducting business. These regulations ensure that the market is a fair playing field for all companies. A business law case study takes a specific scenario, fictional or otherwise, and poses questions on the same. S tudents then must read and understand the case to figure out solutions for the problems posed. A business case can be about a company, a particular industry, a market trend, customer behaviour etc. So, how do you approach a case study? And more importantly, how do you begin to solve it? Well, that is what I am here to help with! Here is a step by step guide to crack a business law case study you can follow.
1} The standard approach
I recommend my students to read the case study multiple times to understand the scenario. Every company adheres to some business laws. The theories ensure an equal playing field for all.
The standard approach to any business study would be to understand what’s present at face value. Jot down all the information you find. It gives you a primary picture of the case study. Based on this, you can analyze, infer and arrive at a conclusion.
The opening of any case study sets its context. It gives you some details about the company/individual, their position, the market etc. The main body of the case expands on this premise. Here you find the different scenarios, discussion points and details.
The ending then poses a problem. Most questions have a standard solution. However, you may find cases that are open-ended and have multiple interpretations. Here is a detailed guide to crack a case study you can follow.
Step 1: Understand the problem
The first reading of the case study gives you a good idea of the situation. Read through and note the details of the business law case. It helps you identify certain fundamental facts about the case.
A reading of the case study explores the scope and expectations of the business law scenario. This also includes the questions posed towards the end of the passage. Understand the problem and identify the resources needed to solve it effectively.
The subsequent readings further clarify the facts presented. And the more you read the case study, the more alternatives you find to solve it.
Step 2: Analyze the information given
There are three different theories to solve any case study. These techniques are not limited to business case studies. You can apply them to decode any case study, irrespective of the sector or subject. Some of them I attempt to discuss below.
a. The Pareto Principle
The Pareto Law, aka 80/20 rule , is an essential analytical method. According to this method, you assume that about 80% of the effects arise from 20% causes. This is useful to determine the key focus areas to analyze. With Pareto rule, you reduce the risk of trial and error.
Using the Pareto principle, students can highlight the critical sections of the case study that require deeper analysis. Your results are more accurate, effective and easy to execute. It also saves you a lot of time and effort.
To solve your Business law case study
B. mece framework.
MECE or mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive is a system that helps students categorize the case study. With this format, you categorize information into groups that are exclusive or overlapping.
With the MECE framework, you avoid confusion and simplify the case study. It improves your chances of success with the case study.
c. Using an Issue Tree
With the issue tree, you graphically breakdown the case study into a flowchart. This visual representation of the problem saves you a lot of time and trouble. Students can dissect the facts by arranging them vertically on the logic tree.
Issue tree breaks down complicated problems into smaller sections. It is a smart problem-solving tactic for easier management.
Step 3 -Arrange the alternatives.
Every case study poses multiple alternatives. These alternatives though hypothetical, are factually based. Also, note that these alternatives or opinions are purely objective. Don’t try to pick a side when reading the case study.
A critical analysis of these alternatives helps you form a hypothesis which I’ll discuss shortly later. Apply the business laws and regulations in these situations. Refer to this book “Crack the Case” by David Ohrvall for a better understanding of business law case interviews.
Step 4: Develop a hypothesis.
A hypothesis is a statement that lays down the fundamental assumptions and predictions for the case study. Note that the hypothesis is not a question but a statement. The entire case study then becomes a justification for this premise.
You can use a hypothesis to crack a business law case study . It is a more academic approach to derive theory from the given evidence.
The hypothesis sets the foundation for your answers. You can then move on to question, prove/disprove the premise as the solution progresses.
Step 5: Structuring your arguments
Remember your argument centres around the hypothesis. Combine the confirmed facts and your analysis to recreate the scenario. This helps fill in the gap in the case study.
Giving your arguments a structure also makes them more understandable. Start with a short introductory paragraph where you reinstate the given facts. Then you can build upon them in the main body.
The conclusion should tie the loose ends neatly, helping the reader arrive at a definitive ending. You can also compare the case with other similar scenarios to solidify your argument.
Step 6: Arriving at a solution
Solving the case study is an organic process. Half the puzzle is already solved in the case study. The other half, you can deduce from the information provided. It is a safe and straightforward way to come at a rational conclusion.
Note that the solution should not be a coloured perspective, but an objective extraction. Begin with a list of your key findings and research methodology. A good case study is compact yet contains all the details.
Step 7: Referencing and citations
This is the last part of the process that comes after the conclusion. It is a section where you state the resources and references used to crack the case study. Citing your sources is both ethically and legally acceptable. It protects you from plagiarism charges.
There are three main citation formats- MLA, APA and Harvard styles. I recommend APA or Harvard style referencing for scientific/analytical answers. If your case study analysis is descriptive, then MLA is more suitable. You can refer to the referencing guide at your University website for more details.
You can add annotations and footnotes to cram in additional details. This is a great way to earn some extra brownie points. Don’t forget to cite the sources for diagrams and charts used for your answers as well. Use CiteFast and other tools to get instant and accurate citations.
2} Elements of a business case study
Every business case study consists of three main elements. First is the scenario, where you find details about the case. The case can discuss issues like company contracts, partnerships, employee behaviour etc.
Most case studies deal with a particular company, employee or entrepreneur’s decision. As a student, you have to put yourself in their shoes and take proactive action to resolve the issue. This helps you understand the subject and its concepts much better than mere classroom learning.
The second part focuses on the crux of the issue. The case study usually ends with a set of questions based on the passage given. These questions are solely based on the given section. All the answers are either present in the case or can be deduced from it.
The last part is the hypothesis, where you develop a premise to predict a possible explanation of the issue. It follows a logical pattern, where you apply certain business law theories to figure a suitable solution.
3} Need for business law case study
Business law case studies are pretty relevant for students to understand how companies work. It presents a realistic scenario that you can follow, decode and understand. Any business holding must cater to specific rules and regulations under the law.
And as a student of business law, you learn about these regulations and their application in a real-life situation. This is where case studies come into the picture. It gives you an accurate account of how and where to implement these strategies.
Business case studies ground your theoretical coursework in a practical scenario. Students can understand the application and need for business laws.
4} The bottom line
Trade and commerce are integral parts of any society. And every venture or industry needs a set of standard principles. With case studies, you have an opportunity to explore the different aspects of the business from an objective perspective.
Decoding a business law case study is a step-by-step process.
Business law combines the legal and commercial aspects of an enterprise. It gives an in-depth insight into a situation.
I hope my approach would help you grasp the case and arrive at an eventual solution.
A Business Law Case Study
A business law case study.
A client worked long and hard to build an agency into a successful business that provided for him and his family. He was approached by a much larger agency that wanted to buy him out. One of our transactional attorneys helped negotiate the terms of the transaction and drafted the necessary paperwork.
The deal terms included a cash payment made at closing with the substantial balance due payable by way of monthly payments due under the promissory note over several years. Since the buying entity was a corporation , we insisted on having the personal guarantees of the shareholders. The seller agreed that except for working for the buyer, he would not be active in the business so as not to compete with the buyer. One of the assets being sold was the name of the business, which was also the name of the seller’s corporation. Following closing, the seller had to change the name of the corporation. In order to secure payment, there was security agreement which provided that if the buyer defaulted on payments, the seller would get back everything being sold. The buyer insisted in an indemnification agreement which provided for reimbursement if it was determined that either party materially misrepresented any important facts to the other.
The documentation that we negotiated and drafted included an asset purchase agreement, the promissory note, the security agreement, the covenant not to compete, a bill of sale for the tangible assets, and an indemnification agreement. After closing, we filed a UCC-1 financing statement with the Department of State in Albany to perfect our client’s security interest. We changed the name of the corporation. We also arranged for the buyer to pay sales tax on those assets that were taxable on the sale.
Unfortunately, things didn’t turn out so well. After several months, the buyer stopped making the monthly payments under the promissory note. They had their excuses, which we thought were weak and groundless. Attempts to settle did not bring the desired results so one of our litigators brought litigation in the Supreme Court for breach of the promissory note. The buyer asserted its defenses but the judge agreed with us and we won.
Winning a lawsuit is only half the battle. Judgment debtors often refuse to pay and you have to work to collect on the judgment. The attorney for the buyer contacted us and offered us half of our judgment amount in the hopes of settling quickly. We rejected that proposal. The buyer also threatened, and ultimately did, file an appeal. An appeal would likely take as long as two years and cost many thousands of dollars. Our client had to weigh that cost and delay against the benefit of an immediate settlement. Our client has a strong stomach and said no several times.
Even while considering settlement offers, we carried on our collection efforts. We learned that the buyer and its shareholders owned real estate in several counties so we filed the judgment in all of those counties. This would prevent the buyer and its shareholders from selling or refinancing their real estate in those counties until they satisfied our judgment. We began the process of garnishing their wages.
We also prepared information subpoenas which were served on the judgment debtors to ask questions about their assets. Once we received that information we could of had the sheriff seize assets. We could of also brought the judgment debtors in for depositions to ask questions about their assets.
As all this was happening, the buyer’s attorney continued to contact us with ever-increasing settlement offers. Eventually the number was large enough to satisfy our client and we agreed. He received a large bank check within five days and avoided having to finance and endure an appeal.
Please contact us if you have business issues you would like to discuss with experienced legal counsel.

Business Law: Case Studies Examples
Case study no. 1 – coca-cola co. v. babyback’s int’l, inc., 806 n.e.2d 37 (ind.ct.app. 2004), description of facts.
The facts relate to a conflict of assertion and denial of the formation of contractual obligations between CCE (Coca-Cola Enterprises) and Babyback’s International Inc. In addition, whether the enforcement of a memo between the parties was a valid and enforceable document, despite the fact that it was preliminary in nature and did not incriminate CCE in the terms and conditions mentioned in it. Babyback Int. Inc. had entered into agreement with Hondo Incorp. , Bottling and handling agents, which gave rights to Babyback to have their products displayed alongside Coca-Cola in Indanapolis. Encouraged by the responses it generated, it was decided to cover other regions of Atlanta under CCE jurisdiction, although no written agreement was signed.
After round of talks between CCE and Babyback, during November 97, Babyback sent a fax message to CCE enlisting general terms and conditions governing a co-marketing strategy in Atlanta and other country.
It was held by Babyback that CCE had breached the agreement when it did not honour the terms and conditions contained in fax message sent for release of up-front charges and denied having ever had a valid contractual relationship with Babyback. The fact remained whether Babyback would be able to enforce the agreement based on oral discussions, of no mutually contracted significance. CCE had stressed all along that they need to be granted a partial summary judgment since, under the Statute of Frauds, the contract needs to be performed within a year and written contracts need to be signed by parties. CCE argues that the faxed memo following the November 1997 meeting is insufficient to satisfy the statute because it fails to contain the essential terms of a contract, and further, because it shows that no consensual agreement had been reached between the parties
After invaliditing the CCE motion for partial summary judgment, the Trial Court held this appeal made after mutual discussion identified three major areas for appellate review
- Whether this memo would constitute valid evidence under the Statute of Frauds.
- Implication of the Past performance doctrine.
- The availability of the doctrine of promissory estoppels.
It is seen that CCE has not be able to enforce the partial summary judgment in order to avoid the Statute of Frauds. The conditions specified in the Statute of Fraud, inter alia include, “the promise, contract, or agreement on which the action is based,” or “a memorandum or note describing the promise, contract, or agreement,” must be “in writing and signed by the party against whom the action is brought or by the party’s authorized agent.” Ind. Code § 32-21-1-1(b). (In the Indiana Supreme Court: Statute of frauds writing).
Moreover, it i s seen that the faxed memo is not an ultimate contractual document, but only a preliminary instrument for negotiations. Since the matters are still under discussion stages, the matter is still wide open and anything could transpire. Therefore, it would be premature for CCE to make estimated guesses upon the ultimate outcome of the appellate hearings and its outcomes.
Yocca v.Pittsburg Steelage Sports Inc. 806 A.2d 936 (Pa. Commw. Ct. 2002)
The facts relate to the purchase of stadium builder licenses from Pittsburgh Steelers, the purpose of the SBL being to finance the construction of a bigger football stadium. As per the terms of the SBL Brochure, during November 1998, the applicants signed the application and sent the requisite deposit money for reserving seats for the football matches to be played in the stadium. In the applications, the applicants had to indicate their choice of section of the stadium in which they wanted their seats to be located. However, in the Brochures, the seat and blocks were not clearly demarcated. However the appellees gave their preferences and also their first , second and third preferences. They had indicated their seats to be located in the 20-yard line.
However, they received allotment letter and SBL Agreement letter in August 1999, showing their allotted seats different from what was promised to them through the Brochure.
The issue that arouse were that the allotted seats were not in conformity with the seats shown in the SBL Brochures and were between the 18 Yard line instead of 20 yards line. Moreover, it was also felt that they were awarded Grade II seats when they had paid for Grade I seats. (Houghton Miffin: Online Study Center. Incensed, the appellates filed a suit in the trial court.
The trial Court dismissed the appelates contention stating that the SBL agreement assumed supreme importance, was an integrated document, and superceded all other previous documents. The SBL Brochure was just an invitation for the public to make offers and did not constitute a valid commitment or promise. Their contention that Unfair Trade Practices & Consumer Protection Law ( UTPCL) was violated did not hold good since the Court felt that SBL were neither goods nor services. (In the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania Western District : Ronald A. Yolla et al v. The Pittsburgh Steeler Sports Inc.
The appellees were not also given the benefit of declaratory relief since it was felt that this contract cannot be nullified since the SBL Agreement has been accepted and authenticated by the appellants.
The appelles next went to the Common wealth Courts, who, while validating the trial court’s dismissal of Appellees’ fraud and negligent misrepresentation claims and injunctive relief
Claim, “reversed “the trial court’s dismissal of Appellees’ claims for breach of contract. (In the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania Western District : Ronald A. Yolla et al v. The Pittsburgh Steeler Sports Inc.
However, Justice Cohn took a different stance and enforced the concept of parol evidence in the form of the SBL Agreement superceded all other documents and evidences. Again, the matter of declaratory relief stating that the terms of the SBL Brochure must be merged into the SBL agreement is not tenable in law.since the SBL Agreement is complete in itself and the Courts felt that further explanations were not needed.
Accordingly, we reverse the Commonwealth Court’s order reversing the trial court’s order dismissing Appellees’ claims for breach of contract, violation of the UTPCPL, and Held, the Commonwealth Court’s directives hereby reverse the reversing trial court’s verdict rejecting the Appellees claims for breach of contract etc, (In the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania Western District: Ronald A. Yolla et al v. The Pittsburgh Steeler Sports Inc.
It is felt that justice has not been fully carried out in this case. This is because the appelles had place their trust and confidence on the SBL brochure, and had booked their seats meticulously and without the chances of errors. However, it is seen that the Sports Corp. had not lived up to its promises as evidenced in the SBL Brochure. It also needs to be said that the contractual agreement between the Appellees and the Company began upon sending of the completed Application forms along with the stipulated payments, well within stipulated date. It would have been in the fitness of things if the aggrieved appellees are duly compensated for the losses suffered by them in terms of lowered seating positions which was not in consonance with the diagrams shown in the initial Brochures and which later on turned to be of Class II instead of Class II, thereby incurring losses.

Case studies are used in a variety of disciplines, both as teaching and research tools. When looking for cases studies be aware that there are three types.
- Teaching case studies present real-world problems and give students the opportunity to explore ambiguities, test assumptions, develop decision-making skills and evaluate recommendations. They reflect the ambiguity of a situation and need not have a single outcome.
- Research case studies employ a specific methodology to develop an in-depth and multidimensional understanding of an issue or research problem. They add to the body of theoretical knowledge and are more academically focused and evidence-based (Crowe et.al., 2011).
- Cases that are reported examinations of a particular real-life circumstance or entity, such as a specific legal case, an example of a medical issue in a single patient or group of patients, or a discussion of a particular business entity or situation. In medicine and allied health these may be called 'case reports'. In law these are simply called 'cases'. In business these are often called 'case studies'.

Exercising personal jurisdiction over SET would not comport with due process under either federal or Illinois constitutions, because Plaintiff cannot meet the standard to satisfy the federal due process requirements. Federal due process requires Plaintiff to establish: “(1) the nonresident defendant had ‘minimum contacts’ with the forum state such that there was ‘fair warning’ that the nonresident defendant may be hauled into court there; (2) the action arose out of or related to the defendant's contacts with the forum state; and (3) it is reasonable to require the defendant to litigate in the forum state.” Keller, 834 N.E.2d at 936.
Case Studies : Contracts, Business, And Laws
Contracts, business, and laws are three simple little words, but when put together they have a substantial impact on our everyday lives. Below we will discuss three case studies. The first case is between Chris, Matt, and Ian vs. Donald Margolin, who was injured when he used an aftershave lotion that he bought off the internet called Funny Face. The second case is between Sam, his landlord, and a national chain store. Sam is being accused of conducting business from his apartment and going back on a verbal promise. In the last case is two lifelong friends who decided to join in a partnership and open up a sporting goods shop. Therefore, before the appropriate court can proceed with the first case, the court should take into several considerations around the rules of jurisdiction, alternative dispute resolution (ADR), and whether or not corporation/or corporate offices can be held for the criminal or potential act. In the second case before the court can rule the court should determine the various elements of a valid contract, if a quasi-contract exists, a promissory estoppel, and the rights an obligation of a tenant would prevail on Sam 's claims. Finally, in the third case between Jeb and Josh, they should determine the type of business entity that will overall protect their business and personal needs.
Company as a Separate Legal Entity
When the company went into liquidation, the liquidator argued that the debentures used by Mr. Salomon as security for the debt were invalid, on the grounds of fraud. The judge, Vaughan Williams J. accepted this argument, ruling that since Mr. Salomon had created the company solely to transfer his business to it, the company was in reality his agent and he as principal was liable for debts to unsecured creditors.

The Doctrine Of Separate Legal Personality
In this essay I will begin with the concept of a company having a separate corporate personality and limited liability with their importance in company law. The doctrine of separate legal personality which was made by the House of Lords in Salomon v Salomon and co ltd (1897) was the landmark case. Furthermore I will describe the concept of the ‘veil of incorporation’. I will give relevant cases of when the veil of incorporation can be lifted by the courts and statuary provisions, for instance, s.16 Companies Act 2006 and incorporate different viewpoints of the judges. Finally I will state whether or not I agree with the given articulation.
Salomon V Salomon And The Legal Entity
Limited liability is an instrument that basically encourages the process of development of the economy. Lack of limiting the liability, the risks of investing would be significantly higher and the obligations will expand. The separation of the corporate entity, is a protection and overall, without its establishment the results will be lower activity in the entire economy. However, on the creditors’ point of view regarding the liability, there is a restriction of the assets and they cannot exceed company’s assets, which in case of wound up the unsecured creditors’ claims could not be fully met.

A business law assignment is generally a legal case study about a dispute which law students are given to resolve through a legal means.
Business law disputes arise between two parties over matters such as a sale, contract, merger, and others.
What Is an Example of a Business Case?
Tiffany got a mailer from Glam Girl Hair Salon. The salon's adverts claimed people could get manicures and any hairstyle of their choice for $15. A surprised Tiffany couldn't resist such a mouthwatering opportunity. She believed the salon was trying to woo new customers with the giveaway price. On getting to the salon, the manager informed Tiffany that there was a typo in the message she received and that the actual price was $100.
It's still a great price, said the manager as it costs about $200 for such service under normal circumstances. An exasperated Tiffany flared up in anger because of the fuel she used to get herself to the salon. Advise Tiffany as a lawyer. What advice would you give her if she was only informed of the real price after getting her hair styled and the manicure?
What Is the Solution to the Sample Business Case?
When a seller advertises his or her products inviting the public to buy, such information is referred to as an "invitation to treat" under contract law. If a buyer offers to buy the product and the seller agrees to sell, an enforceable agreement can be established. In Tiffany's case, she can't claim any travel expense because she only responded to an advert, which in this case is an "invitation to treat". If she had used the service without knowing the actual price, she would be forced to pay $100 and thus be able to establish an enforceable contract .
What Is the Purpose of a Business Law Assignment Report?
The purpose of the business law assignment report is to provide foreign clients with the fundamentals of English law. The report is divided into two parts. The first part details the various sources of English law as well as specific laws which apply to every type of organization.
The second part explains the role of government in legislation and common laws used in the court of justice. The role of government assesses the superiority of the parliament, bill formation, passage of laws, and royal assent. Also, the common law and its application in court use case law and the doctrine of precedent as its legal structure. The report also includes statutory law and its application in legal processes and related legislation.
What Is the Purpose of Law?
The fundamental concept of law holds that laws are formed to maintain basic societal structure through specific behaviors. Violating these behaviors may lead to sanctions on the violator. The court of law or justice is responsible for identifying and measuring rules violations.
What Does the English Law Deal with?
The English law system deals with the following:
What Is the Jurisdiction of the English Law?
The jurisdiction of English law is restricted to England and Wales. England and Wales's legal structure has primary and secondary legislative divisions.
What Is the Primary Legislation of The English Law?
The primary legislation of English law refers to laws created by the delegates of the English Parliament. These laws are similar to legislation created in the Scottish parliament or Ireland's assembly. Also, parliamentary delegates are empowered to create secondary legislation.
What Does Primary Legislation Include?
The primary legislation includes the following:
- Public Act: Acts are passed in parliament after royal assent. Acts can either be old or modern. Examples of acts include the Housing Act 1963 and the Transport Act 2000.
- Local and Personal Act: Local acts cover organizational benefits and corporate restrictions while personal acts cover divorce, grants of citizenship, name and title changes and others.
- Church of England and Church Assembly Measures: The 1919 Power Act (UK) gives the Church of England parliamentary powers. It also includes the Clergy Measure Act and Beneficiary Act.
