This volume examines the circumstances in which a shareholder can bring an action on behalf of a company (a derivative action). It explores how this remedy may be used to ensure good corporate governance, and lays out a theoretical framework and practical guidance for future development of the law.

Derivative actions are an important aspect of the continuing debate about corporate governance in the UK, the US and many other jurisdictions worldwide. This book offers a conceptually inclusive approach to thinking about derivative actions by providing a detailed and clear overview, commentary, and a theoretically informed explanation of the law governing derivative actions in the corporate governance context.

About the Author:


Dr. Arad Reisberg, D.Phil (Oxon), Advocate, is Lecturer in Laws at the Faculty of Laws, University College London.He is a contributing author to Annotated Companies Acts (Oxford University Press looseleaf), and sits on the Editorial Board of the Journal International Corporate Rescue.

Review:

Dr Reisberg's study is...a timely and important contribution to the scholarship on this new statutory remedy, one of company law's "most thorny aspects" (p.1), which he sees principally as a mechanism of corporate accountability (p.5)...As one has come to expect with any book appearing under the imprint of Oxford University Press, Dr Reisberg's book has been produced and edited to the highest academic and publishing standards * Professor Stephen Girvin, University of Birmingham, ICCLR 2008 19(9) * Dr Reisberg's highly scholarly text...provides a well thought-out analysis on derivative claims. The book provides excellent insights on when they are justifiable in the context of the current provisions in the Companies Act 2006...the conceptual framework presented in this book would definitely be of a tremendous help for those who need to engage in the topic for various reasons...he formulated a theoretical framework and operational guidance for future development of the law. * Peter Yeoh, Business Law Review * An exhaustive and penetrating analysis of the law relating to derivative actions. No stone has been left unturned...Dr Reisberg has, on many occasions in this book, sought to push the boundaries of that knowledge in his all-embracing approach...mandatory reading for all company lawyers. * Professor Stephen Girvin, 19 (2008) International Company and Commercial Law Review, p.308 *

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This volume examines the circumstances in which a shareholder can bring an action on behalf of a company (a derivative action), exploring how this remedy may be used to ensure good corporate governance, and laying out a theoretical framework and practical guidance for future development of the law. Derivative actions are an important aspect of the continuing debate about corporate governance in the UK, the US and many other jurisdictions worldwide. This book offers a conceptually inclusive approach to thinking about derivative actions by providing a detailed and clear overview, commentary, and a theoretical explanation of the law governing derivative actions in the corporate governance context. Reisberg provides a fundamental reassessment of the nature and objectives of the derivative action, and conceptualizes a new model of the derivative action mechanism. He argues that action should be taken in three areas: (1) conceptual (adoption of a new framework- the Functional and Focused Model set out in the book) (2) strategic (employment of appropriate incentives and fee rules which advance the premises behind the Model) (3) maintaining doctrinal consistency (clarification of the interaction between the derivative action and other remedies available to shareholders) This book offers practical guidance on solving current problems in many jurisdictions based on case law, and on substantive legal, economic, and comparative research. It also provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis and commentary on the regime governing derivative actions under Part 11 of the Companies Act 2006 in the UK.
