Corporate governance in financial institutions has come under the spotlight since the banking crisis in the UK in 2008-9. In many respects, the banking business raises unique problems for corporate governance that are not found in other corporate sectors.

The Law on Corporate Governance in Banks is the first work to provide a detailed survey and practical examination of key topical issues in the corporate governance of banks and financial institutions. Combining the insight and expertise of leading corporate lawyers in the field with rigorous academic analysis, the book unpicks and clarifies the legal issues that confront corporate and banking law practitioners when advising banks and financial institutions, including; governance structure, collective board responsibility, directors' liability, the role of shareholders, corruption control mechanisms, remuneration, corporate accountability, and risk management.

With its practical focus and strong theoretical platform, this book will be an important resource for corporate and financial lawyers seeking to understand and advise on the changing and dynamic legal landscape.

Key features of the book include:-

  • An author team of senior practitioners and leading academic experts
  • Detailed treatment of all the key corporate governance issues in financial sector
