Magnuson, William Associate Professor


My primary research interests are in the areas of business associations, mergers and acquisitions, international business transactions, and international law. My current research focuses on a series of inter-related questions about the changing relationship between states and corporations in the modern world. For example, how can states constrain corporate behavior in a world of global competition and mobile capital? How do new business forms, such as private equity funds and hedge funds, both shape and respond to government regulation? What ramifications does this shifting landscape of corporate law have for how we conceptualize the role of business in the modern world?
