George Schoen and Keith Hallam Author Chapter on Dual‑Class Share Structures for The International Comparative Legal Guide to Corporate Governance 2020

Cravath partners George F. Schoen and Keith Hallam authored the opening chapter of The International Comparative Legal Guide to Corporate Governance 2020, which provides cross‑border insight on corporate governance and is published by Global Legal Group. The chapter, entitled “Dual‑Class Share Structures in the United States,” summarizes the debate around when and whether dual-class share structures can create value for shareholders, taking into account concerns from institutional investors as to the effect of recent IPO filings from prominent technology companies on corporate governance, as well as the argument that these structures can incentivize innovation and long-term value creation. George and Keith review the current and historical landscape in dual‑class share structures and explore recent policy proposals.
