Book description

This in-depth comparative examination of the derivative action in Asia provides a framework for analysing its function, history and practical application and examines in detail how derivative actions law works in practice in seven important Asian jurisdictions (China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Singapore). These case studies allow an evaluation of a number of the leading Western comparative corporate law and governance theories which have come to define the field over the last decade. By debunking some of these critically important theories, this book lays the foundation for an accurate understanding of the derivative action in Asia and a re-examination of the regulation of the derivative action around the world.

Reviews

'Lucid, informative and wide-ranging in coverage, The Derivative Action in Asia will be a standard reference for corporate governance scholars and practitioners.'

Curtis J. Milhaupt - Parker Professor of Comparative Corporate Law and Fuyo Professor of Japanese Law, Columbia Law School

'This book carefully explores one of the core mechanisms of corporate governance in a region that has not been examined sufficiently: Asia. The Derivative Action in Asia delivers a wealth of detail for readers interested in the systems of specific countries, while at the same time brilliantly complicating any search for a uniquely Asian approach by highlighting the diversity among those systems. I highly recommend it to scholars, practitioners, and anyone interested in comparative corporate governance.'

Mark D. West - Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Nippon Life Professor of Law, University of Michigan Law School

'[This] book provides valuable information and insights not just concerning derivative actions per se, but also corporate governance patterns and theoretical debates, the investment environment and capitalism generally in Asia.'
