The Corporation as a Nexus for Regulation reconceptualizes the corporation as a “nexus for regulation” rather than a “nexus for contracts” through examination of regulatory partitioning — separation of corporate regulation from stockholders — and the “departitioning” remedy of “veil peeking” — looking behind the corporate veil to ascribe rights or obligations to stockholders — as a form of legal separation provided by the corporate entity distinct from asset partitioning — separation of corporate assets from stockholders — and the remedy of veil piercing — setting aside limited liability to hold stockholders liable for corporate obligations.
