Contract-Centered Veil-Piercing


Nicholas L. Georgakopoulos


Indiana University - Robert H. McKinney School of Law

May 2005


Abstract:     
The application of the doctrine of piercing the corporate veil to contract disputes has been attacked as undesirable. This article shows that applying piercing to contracts is desirable. Contract-centered veil-piercing functions akin to a penalty-default clause that encourages the efficient production of information, avoids wasteful precaution, and promotes the use of the corporate form for entrepreneurship.
