Hines Paper Accepted for Publication
The Corporate Gatekeeper in Ethical Perspective by Professor Christopher T. Hines has been accepted for publication in Volume 77 of the Missouri Law Review (2012, forthcoming). This article is the second in a proposed series of three articles on the intersection of corporate law and legal ethics. More specifically, the argument presented is that cases involving conflicts of interest in the corporate and securities law space may be viewed as primarily calling into question the ethical rules of the corporate gatekeeper. In support of such an argument, this article sets forth a framework for conflicts of interest scenarios that takes into account four categories of legal rules -- activity rules, disclosure rules, liability rules and ethical rules. The working draft of this article is available on SSRN.
