Cguppi: Scoring Incentives To Engage In Parallel Accommodating Conduct, Serge Moresi, David Reitman, Steven C. Salop, Yianis Sarafidis 2015 Charles River Associates (CRA)

Cguppi: Scoring Incentives To Engage In Parallel Accommodating Conduct, Serge Moresi, David Reitman, Steven C. Salop, Yianis Sarafidis

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

We propose an index for scoring coordination incentives, which we call the “coordination GUPPI” or cGUPPI. While the cGUPPI can be applied to a wide range of coordinated effects concerns, it is particularly relevant for gauging concerns of parallel accommodating conduct (PAC), a concept that received due prominence in the 2010 U.S. Horizontal Merger Guidelines. PAC is a type of coordinated conduct whereby a firm raises price with the expectation—but without any prior agreement—that one or more other firms will follow and match the price increase. The cGUPPI is the highest uniform price increase that all the ...

Freedom Of Establishment Within The European Union & Italian Logistics And Transport Companies, Sajjad Khaksari

SAJJAD KHAKSARI

When European Union (UE) fixed “FREEDOM OF ESTABLISHMENT WITHIN THE EUROPEAN UNION”, transport world dramatically has changed, as many other EU industries. A dramatic change that was not so visible for costumers (who received transport or logistics services) but it has changed the Labour Rights for the persons whose are working hard in the hard conditions...

Directors’ Defence Of Reliance On Professional Advisers Under Anglo-Australian Law, Wai Yee WAN 2015 Singapore Management University

Directors’ Defence Of Reliance On Professional Advisers Under Anglo-Australian Law, Wai Yee Wan

Research Collection School Of Law

This paper analyses the issue of whether directors may use reliance on professional advice as a defence to a claim for breach of duty to exercise care, skill and diligence under common law or companies legislation in England and Australia. While England and Australia share the same common law tradition and have similar statutory provisions on the standard of care of directors, an English court generally regards a director as acting reasonably when he seeks advice from a qualified and independent professional adviser in a specialist matter within his expertise. In the absence of any conflict of interest, reliance is ...

Re-Envisioning Investors’ Anti-Director Rights Index: Theory, Criticism, And Implications, Sang Yop Kang 2015 Peking University

Re-Envisioning Investors’ Anti-Director Rights Index: Theory, Criticism, And Implications, Sang Yop Kang

Sang Yop Kang

‘Law and Finance’ theory – which offers analytical frameworks to measure the protection of public investors and the quality of corporate governance – has dominated the comparative corporate governance scholarship in the last decade. So far, many proponents and critics have had debates on the relevance of the theory and the implications of the theory’s empirical studies. Several important points in relation to shareholder protection, however, have been highly neglected in these debates. In particular, the significance of one-share-one-vote (OSOV) rule has been inappropriately underestimated. In response, this Article explores (1) why OSOV is an utmost critical component in corporate governance ...


Strengthening Charity Law: Replacing Media Oversight With Advance Rulings For Nonprofit Fiduciaries, Linda Sugin 2015 Fordham University School of Law

Strengthening Charity Law: Replacing Media Oversight With Advance Rulings For Nonprofit Fiduciaries, Linda Sugin

Faculty Scholarship

This Article considers three urgent challenges facing the charitable community and its state regulators: too little fiduciary duty law for nonprofits, the rise of media enforcement of wrongdoing in charities, and an inherent tension in the state’s dual role as enforcer and protector of the nonprofit sector. It analyzes whether the scarcity of law is really a problem by comparing nonprofit organizations with business organizations and concludes that charities lack the selfenforcement mechanisms of businesses and therefore need more government guidance. It evaluates whether the media has made governmental supervision obsolete and expresses skepticism about the press displacing state ...

企業の社会的責任と戦略的租税行動 [Corporate Social Responsibility And Strategic Tax Behavior], Reuven S. Avi-Yonah, Keisaku Koga Translator 2015 University of Michigan Law School

企業の社会的責任と戦略的租税行動 [Corporate Social Responsibility And Strategic Tax Behavior], Reuven S. Avi-Yonah, Keisaku Koga Translator

Articles

This paper addresses two questions. First, from the perspective of the corporation, should the corporation cooperate and pay the corporate tax, or should it engage in "strategic" tax behavior designed to minimize or eliminate its corporate tax burden? Second, from the perspective of the state, should the state use the corporate tax just to raise revenue, or should it also try to use it as a regulatory tool to steer corporate behavior in directions that it deems beneficial to society? The paper argues that whatever our view of the nature of the corporation and of the legitimacy of corporate social ...


The Enigma Of Veil-Piercing, Pey Woan LEE 2015 Singapore Management University

The Enigma Of Veil-Piercing, Pey Woan Lee

Research Collection School Of Law

In Prest v Petrodel Resources Ltd [2013] 3 WLR 1, Lord Sumption narrowly confined veil-piercing at common law to those cases where a controller had used a company under his control to evade a pre-existing legal liability. This article argues against this approach as it is so narrow that it practically abolished the jurisdiction. Instead, the jurisdiction should be preserved, and its exercise should be constrained by clearly articulated principles.


Sociedades Anónimas Unipersonales, Carlos Molina Sandoval 2014 University of Córdoba, Argentina

Sociedades Anónimas Unipersonales, Carlos Molina Sandoval

Carlos Molina Sandoval

La LGS incorpora las sociedades anonimas unipersonales. Atento que se trata de una sociedad con un órgano de gobierno singular, pero con órganos de administración y fiscalización pluripersonales (a diferencia de las sociedades anónimas pequeñas en las que la unipersonalidad está en el directorio, pero no en la asamblea, más allá de que muchas veces la pluripersonalidad es simbólica). Por ello, podríamos decir que esta clase de sociedades está pensada para las grandes compañías y no para las sociedades familiares.


Who's Swallowing The "Bitter Pill"?: Reforming Write-Offs In The State Of Washington, Lauren M. Martin 2014 Seattle University School of Law

Who's Swallowing The "Bitter Pill"?: Reforming Write-Offs In The State Of Washington, Lauren M. Martin

Seattle University Law Review

Washington’s application of the collateral source rule permits recovery for medical expenses that were never incurred and have no relationship to their market value. This application is set forth in Hayes v. Wieber Enterprises, Inc., where the plaintiff sued a restaurant for injuries she sustained from falling down the restaurant’s basement stairs. Why should the collateral source rule compel the defendant in Hayes to pay the original amount billed, $5,800, when the physician accepted $3,300 as payment in full? Is not $3,300 the reasonable or market value of the medical services provided to the plaintiff ...

Protecting Whistleblower Protections In The Dodd-Frank Act, Samuel C. Leifer 2014 University of Michigan Law School

Protecting Whistleblower Protections In The Dodd-Frank Act, Samuel C. Leifer

Michigan Law Review

In 2008, the United States fell into its worst economic recession in over seventy years. In response, Congress enacted the near-comprehensive Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Section 922 of Dodd–Frank, in particular, includes specific provisions designed to incentivize and protect corporate whistleblowers. These provisions demonstrated Congress’s belief that a comprehensive and robust whistleblower protection scheme was essential to preventing many of the abuses that caused the financial crisis. Unfortunately, this section’s inconsistent language has produced conflicting decisions within the federal judiciary. In accordance with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”)’s own reading ...
