Compilations were frequent before the days of electronic research, and these compilations are frequently published in loose-leaf format. Additionally, treaties and conventions may also be found individually.
Who Can Sign - For partnerships, only general partners can sign a contract, not a limited partner. For LLC's, a managing member or a hired manager can sign. For corporations, the company's president or chief executive officer is presumed to have the authority to sign. For an organization or association, a board president would have the authority, but may require a vote of the governing board to approve the deal.
