Reiser & Dean: Social Enterprise Law (Oxford University Press)

Social Enterprise LawDana Brakman Reiser and Steven A. Dean (both Brooklyn) have written Social Enterprise Law: Trust, Public Benefit and Capital Markets. Here is an overview:

  • Controversial thesis: law can make corporations better citizens and make it easier for start-ups to raise capital by preventing insiders from selling out a social mission for increased profit
  • Timely analysis: explores potential impact of new crowdfunding rules and increasingly popular hybrid legal forms such as the benefit corporation on the ability of start-ups to raise capital
  • Provocative solutions: several chapters show how corporate governance, contract and even tax law can be harnessed to balance public good against private greed
