Thomas Hall and George Bundy Smith's article, "Applying the Doctrine of Incorporation by Estoppel," was published in the New York Law Journal on December 18, 2015. The article discusses how at times a non-existent corporation can be deemed to exist, and thus possess the legal capacity to contract and bring suit on that contract, pursuant to the common law doctrine of incorporation by estoppel.

Law clerk Jacob Laksin assisted in the preparation of the article.
