The Georgetown Law Journal recently published Associate Matthew Dulac’s article, titled “Sustaining the Sustainable Corporation: Benefit Corporations and the Viability of Going Public.”

In the article, Dulac examines the growth in social entrepreneurship and addresses the three main concerns of the public benefit corporation: whether public benefit corporations have sufficient access to capital to go public; whether the fiduciary duty concerns of public company directors prohibit public benefit corporations from going public; and whether takeovers or change-of-control transactions effectively extinguish the notion of a long-term publicly traded public benefit corporation.
