In what cases will jurisdiction over a U.S. subsidiary allow for jurisdiction over a parent company in a foreign country?

(a): Much like the traditional piercing the veil test, whether jurisdiction over a subsidiary allows for jurisdiction over a foreign parent company depends on the degree of control the parent company exercises over the subsidiary. Factors such as whether the companies are held out as a single entity, the number of common officers, executives, and directors between the companies will be considered in determining the degree of control.
