Partner Philip Robben and associate Alina Mejer authored the article, “Piercing the Corporate Veil,” in Practical Law The Journal. The article discusses the doctrine of piercing the corporate veil, particularly in the parent-subsidiary context; explains the two primary arguments used to prove piercing claims, the alter ego theory and the agency theory; and examines what parent companies can do to minimize their exposure to the liabilities of their subsidiaries.
