Securities class actions, corporate governance and managerial agency problems

This paper provides support for the proposition that securities class actions help solve agency problems. Two key findings support this conclusion. First, firms that are more likely to suffer from agency problems are more likely to face class actions.

Foreign bank credit to U.S. corporations: the implications of offshore loans
