Article on Corporate Benefit Doctrine: Basis to Award Attorneys’ Fees

Bloomberg BNA Corporate Law and Accountability Report* recently published my short article on the corporate benefit doctrine as a basis for the award of attorneys’ fees, as applied by the Court of Chancery in Sutherland v. Sutherland, a decision summarized on these pages, which was the latest installment in a long-running battle about the management of a substantial family-owned enterprise that generated many published Delaware decisions on corporate governance, spanning nearly a decade of multiple levels of litigation.
