Professor lands on Top 10 Corporate and Securities Articles

Steven Davidoff

Steven Davidoff


An article by Steven Davidoff, associate professor of law and finance at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, has been selected as one of the Top 10 Corporate and Securities Articles of 2012 by Corporate Practice Commentator.

Those who teach corporate and securities law were asked to select the best articles from a list of more than 550 articles published and indexed in legal journals during 2012.

The article Davidoff co-authored with University of Notre Dame Professor Matthew D. Cain, “Delaware’s Competitive Reach,” was published in the Journal of Empirical Legal Studies. Davidoff and Cain examined Delaware’s ability to retain corporate litigation. They evaluated the selection of governing law and forum clauses in 1,020 merger agreements between public firms from 2004-2008 and found, as stated in their abstract, “that Delaware's attractiveness to merging parties has increased in recent years.”

“Parties appear to respond to exogenous events, evidenced by the fact that top-tier legal advisors, foreign acquirers, transactions surrounded by greater financial uncertainty, and larger transactions tend to select Delaware's forum over other venues,” they wrote.
