Even though globalization is lowering the economic boundaries between the world’s most important markets, the corporate laws of each country remain entirely unique. International Corporate Law Compendium contains a comprehensive review of corporate law in countries around the world, providing practical guidance to enable investors and their professional advisers to understand the nature of the business entity they are dealing with and provides an opportunity to make comparative assessments of the advantages and disadvantages of incorporating in each country.

International Corporate Law Compendium covers each country in its own expertly authored chapter, and each chapter follows the same format—so you know exactly where to look to find the information you need. Plus, this consistent formatting makes comparison between countries fast and easy in these areas covered for every country:
