Abstract

The share of family-controlled firms (FCFs), as well as their strategies and performance vary from one context to another. We explain these differences using a new construct of familylegitimizing environment (FLE). We contribute to the literature on sociological corporate governance and family firms by reconciling inconsistent empirical findings, examining both emerging and developed markets.
