The Routledge Handbook of Corporate Law provides an accessible overview of current research in the field, from an international and comparative perspective.

In recent years there has been an explosion of corporations law research, as this area of law continues to develop rapidly throughout the world. Traditionally, Anglo-American corporate law theory has dominated debates and publications; however, this Handbook readdresses the balance by exploring the treatment of corporate law in both Europe and Asia, as well developments in the US and UK. Bringing together a wide range of key thinkers in the field, this volume is divided into five main parts:

  • Theories of the Corporation
  • The Corporate Constitution and Corporate Structure
  • Corporate Governance and Control
  • Shareholders and other Stakeholders
  • Corporate Finance and Disclosure (after Enron and the GFC)
Providing up-to-date and authoritative articles covering all the key aspects of corporations law, this reference work is essential reading for advanced students, scholars and practitioners in the field.
