Corporate Law Through an Antitrust Lens
- Author(s): Rock, Edward B
- et al.
Antitrust law provides a better framework than corporate law for analyzing issues at the boundary between firms and markets. Such issues arise when shareholders are also competitors. For example, antitrust analysis calls into question the practice of joint bargaining by shareholders targeted by tender offers. Other issues illuminated by antitrust analysis include stakeholder coalitions and state antitakeover statutes.
