Bert W. Wasserman Workshop in Law and Finance: "Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls: Fiduciary Duties in Venture Capital Backed Startups" with Prof. Sarath Sanga '14 of Northwestern Pritzker School of Law

  • 4:10PM to 5:40PM
  • SLB Room 121

ABSTRACT: We develop a model of venture capital contracting and use it to evaluate an emergent set of judicial precedents in corporate law, which we label the Trados doctrine. In our model, founders hold common stock while venture capital investors hold convertible preferred stock. We show that preferred shareholders have inefficient incentives to liquidate low-valued firms and to continue high-valued firms, while common shareholders inefficiently favor the opposite.
