Three Columbia Law School professors were named to Corporate Practice Commentator’s “Top 10 Corporate and Securities Articles of 2016” list.

In the 23rd-annual peer-based poll, articles by Professors Merritt B. Fox, Zohar Goshen, and Eric Talley were selected from more than 490 articles published. Here is an overview of their winning pieces:

Merritt Fox, Michael E. Patterson Professor of Law and NASDAQ Professor for Law and Economics of Capital Markets
Published in the Duke Law Journal, Fox’s article, “The New Stock Market: Sense and Nonsense,” was co-authored by Columbia Business School Professor Lawrence Glosten and Gabriel V. Rauterberg, a postdoctoral research scholar and lecturer in law in the Law School’s Program in the Law and Economics of Capital Markets. With the trading of stocks transformed by high-frequency traders, the paper lays out a “simple but powerful” framework for analyzing controversial new practices in the new stock market.   

Zohar Goshen, Alfred W. Bressler Professor of Law
Corporate Control and Idiosyncratic Vision,” co-authored by Goshen and Law School Visiting Professor Assaf  Hamdani, was published in the Yale Law Journal. The paper examines corporate-ownership structures and challenges the prevailing model of controlling shareholders as “opportunistic actors.”  

Eric Talley, Isidor and Seville Sulzbacher Professor of Law:
Talley’s “Corporate Inversions and the Unbundling of Regulatory Competition,” published in the Virginia Law Review, examines the ongoing wave of tax inversions, acquisitions that move a corporation abroad and enable it to pay foreign tax rates while maintaining listing in domestic markets. The paper questions the radical reforms being proposed on practical and on conceptual grounds.

This is not the first time articles by Fox, Goshen, and Talley have been named to this prestigious list—all have received recognition multiple times since Corporate Practice Commentator began publishing the list in 1992. Many other Columbia Law School faculty members, in fact, have figured prominently, and sometimes repeatedly, on the list, including: John Coffee Jr., Ronald J. Gilson, Jeffrey N. Gordon, Kathryn Judge, Ronald J. Mann, Curtis J. Milhaupt ’89, and Dean Emeritus David M. Schizer.
