9780199670918: Business Persons: A Legal Theory of the Firm

Business firms are ubiquitous in modern society, but an appreciation of how they are formed and for what purposes requires an understanding of their legal foundations. Intended for general readers, as well as students and policy markets, Business Persons provides a scholarly and yet accessible introduction to the legal framework of modern business enterprises.

It explains the legal ideas that allow for the recognition of firms as organizational "persons" having social rights and responsibilities. Other foundational ideas include an overview of how the laws of agency, contracts, and property fit together to compose the organized "persons" known as business firms. The institutional legal theory of the firm developed embraces both a "bottom-up" perspective of business participants and a "top-down" rule-setting perspective of government.

Other chapters in the book discuss the features of limited liability and the boundaries of firms. A typology of different kinds of firms is presented ranging from entrepreneurial one-person start-ups to complex corporations, as well as new forms of hybrid social enterprises. Practical applications include contribution to the debates surrounding corporate executive compensation and political free-speech rights of corporations.

Review:


"This book is a path-breaking analysis of the business firm from a legal perspective. As shown by the debate surrounding the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision, the question of corporate legal personality has resurfaced as one of the key legal and political issues of our time. Prof. Orts' book is indispensable reading for anyone interested in exploring the extent to which 'corporations are people too.'"--Reuven S. Avi-Yonah, Irwin I. Cohn Professor of Law, University of Michigan Law School


"In this comprehensive study, Eric Orts takes on the economists and shows why law is essential to our understanding of the business firm. Anyone who cares about the future of business should be grateful for this addition to the literature."--Lynn Sharp Paine, John G. McLean Professor of Business Administration,
Harvard Business School


"Orts has rethought and reformulated corporate law theory, echoing the work of Adolf Berle, Gardiner Means, and H.L.A. Hart. While recent scholarship on the nature of the firm have stressed economic and finance theory, Orts frames the analysis around legal theory. Employing an ethics-focused, multi-perspective approach, Orts draws parallels to the history and philosophy of law. It re-elevates the roles of agency, contract, and property law and theory in addressing questions about the firm. The book includes crucial insights into the modern taxonomy of firms and their shifting boundaries, as well as practical contributions to the policy debate about executive compensation challenges and corporate political speech. Orts is a leading voice advocating a more nuanced view of the firm, delivering a thoroughly-researched and foundational book that is a must-read for anyone thinking about the theory of the modern firm."--Frank Partnoy, Professor of Law and Finance, University of San Diego
