Shift Of Fiduciary Duty Upon Corporate Insolvency: Proper Scope Of Directors' Duty To Creditors, Laura Lin Nov 1993

Shift Of Fiduciary Duty Upon Corporate Insolvency: Proper Scope Of Directors' Duty To Creditors, Laura Lin

Vanderbilt Law Review

In the wake of the debt binge of the 1980s, the number of financially distressed corporations has increased dramatically.' Because a struggling company rarely ceases operations overnight, directors still need to make investment and operational decisions concerning the best use of the company's existing assets. This need remains whether the firm will regain profitability or will be liquidated. Financial distress also intensifies conflicts of interest between shareholders and creditors. Indeed, when these constituencies are unable to recover their investments in the corporation because of insufficient assets, both shareholders and creditors have incentives to maximize their individual returns regard- less of …


The Revised Uniform Partnership Act: The Reporters' Overview, Donald J. Weidner, John W. Larson Nov 1993

The Revised Uniform Partnership Act: The Reporters' Overview, Donald J. Weidner, John W. Larson

Scholarly Publications

This Article is a brief overview of what the Reporters believe to be the four basic contributions of the Revised Uniform Partnership Act (RUPA or Act). First, RUPA changes the law of partnership breakups and gives greater stability to partnerships by abandoning the traditional rule that a partnership is dissolved every time a member leaves. Second, RUPA makes clear that partners are not fiduciaries among themselves in the same sense as disinterested trustees. Specifically, RUPA states that partners legitimately may pursue self-interest without automatically running afoul of their fiduciary duties. On the other hand, RUPA provides an irreducible core of …


Labor Law Successorship: A Corporate Law Approach, Edward B. Rock, Michael L. Wachter Nov 1993

Labor Law Successorship: A Corporate Law Approach, Edward B. Rock, Michael L. Wachter

Michigan Law Review

In this article, we take an approach fundamentally different from that of the labor law commentators. We start from a broader perspective than is common: successorship is as important an issue for corporate law as it is for labor law. Given that the two principal inputs to the firm are labor and capital, it would be surprising if the laws for labor law successorship were completely different from the laws for corporate law successorship. To the extent that differences exist, those differences should hinge upon differences between the employees' and the creditors' relationships with the firm.

From Legitimacy To Logic: Reconstructing Proxy Regulation, Jill E. Fisch Oct 1993

From Legitimacy To Logic: Reconstructing Proxy Regulation, Jill E. Fisch

Vanderbilt Law Review

On October 16, 1992, after a comprehensive review of its system of proxy regulation and after two separate amendment proposals that drew more than 1700 letters of comment from the public, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "Commission" or the "SEC") voted to reform the federal proxy rules. The reforms were "intended to facilitate shareholder communications and to enhance informed proxy voting, and to reduce the cost of compliance with the proxy rules for all persons engaged in a proxy solicitation.' The SEC explained the amendments by stating that the rules were "impeding shareholder communication and participation in the corporate …
