CALLISON ON BENEFIT CORPORATIONS

Bill Callison, a partner in the Denver office of Faegre Baker Daniels, has posted an interesting article on benefit corporations to SSRN.  The article’s abstract is copied below and the article is available here.

This Article describes three approaches to benefit corporation statutes, which it terms the Model Approach, the Delaware Approach and the Colorado Approach. It discusses numerous conceptual problems with the Model Approach, most of which are repaired in the Delaware Approach, and most or all of which would be repaired in the Colorado Approach, It discusses the politics that led Colorado to adopt the Delaware Approach in the face of orthodox opposition to the Colorado Approach, and encourages greater design innovation in order that the benefit corporation story, assuming it is a meaningful one, does not become a “tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
