Publisher Description:

With contributions from the main stakeholders in the field, including company lawyers as well as leading scholars, this four volume collection of classic and contemporary articles maps out the key issues in Business Law.
International Themes in Business Law moves logically from the establishment of companies, the funding and management of companies, the operation of companies in the global context, and what happens when companies fail and how should they be reformed.
Contributors demonstrate not only the depth of the complicated regulation which surrounds modern companies today, but also the breadth of the legal issues to be applied and analyzed.
