Corporate Bankruptcy Law in China

Corporate Bankruptcy Law in China

Author: Natalie (University of Oxford) Mrockova Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/01/2021

This fascinating study uses qualitative and quantitative data and insights from interviews with judges, lawyers, government officials, entrepreneurs, bankers, consultants, and academics in China and abroad, to provide a new perspective on the problems that have hindered the implementation of the Enterprise Bankruptcy Law in China, and recent attempts at reform. The analysis provides unique insights into China's business world and its interaction with the judicial and political system in China. In addition, the book also provides important information about how the Enterprise Bankruptcy Law affects foreign companies, agencies and governments that are active in China. The author draws on empirical data, decided cases and her experience of how the law and surrounding practices deal with foreign stakeholders whose interests are affected by corporate bankruptcy in China. The book will improve understanding of how China's corporate bankruptcy law has been used in practice, what has limited its practical effectiveness, whether it is desirable for the law to be used more readily in China, and the possible options for its reform.

Corporation Law

Author: Franklin A. Gevurtz Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/12/2020

This Hornbook clarifies rather than simply recites corporation law, while paying attention to correcting common misconceptions held among students and attorneys about the subject. This book is also intended for courts and commentators seeking the appropriate resolution of issues of corporation law. It is written in a user-friendly style, with citations kept to a minimum. More than just an update, the Third Edition constitutes a significant expansion and refinement of the prior editions. Among the additions are thoughtful expositions on corporate rights, purpose and social responsibility and extended historical and comparative law discussions. There are also expanded and restructured discussions of policy and doctrine in areas ranging from mergers and acquisitions and securities regulation to corporate governance and the duties of directors and controlling shareholders. These enable the reader to both view corporate law in its broad policy framework at one end, while understanding the nuances of Delaware and U.S. Supreme Court decisions at the other.

Advanced Corporation Law

Advanced Corporation Law

Author: Stephen M. Bainbridge Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/11/2020

Corporate governance has been much in the news in recent years and lawyers are devoting increasing amount of attention to it. The passage of major federal legislation in 2002 (the Sarbanes-Oxley Act a.k.a. SOX) and 2010 (the Dodd-Frank Act) were particularly important developments, generating much new law and, as a result, much new legal work. Curiously, however, the law school casebook market has largely ignored these trends. Corporate governance is regulated by many of the same laws covered in the basic Business Associations course, but increasingly is also regulated by laws-such as SOX and Dodd-Frank-that get short shrift in the typical Business Associations casebook and course. In contrast, those laws are the core focus of the text. In addition to the pertinent laws, the book brings into play sources such as stock exchange listing standards and the rules issued by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board and similar quasi-governmental bodies. Importantly, however, lawyers practicing in the corporate governance space must be knowledgeable not only about the law but also best practice. The text therefore makes frequent references to best practice advice drawn from sources such as law firm client memoranda.

The book also covers relevant federal law, including Sarbanes-Oxley, Rule 10b-5, and Section 16(b). Financial and accounting concepts are explained with helpful examples, so that even sociology majors need not fear them.
