Multinational Enterprises and Tort Liabilities

An Interdisciplinary and Comparative Examination

Muzaffer Eroglu

This book conducts an interdisciplinary and comparative examination of tort liabilities of multinational enterprises (MNEs). In the first part, it examines the social, economic, managerial and legal characteristics of MNEs and compares the findings of this examination to the current understanding of MNEs in the way that tort liability is applied to them. In the second part, the book examines the existing laws and principles related to liability of MNEs from a variety of jurisdictions with the aim of assessing whether these laws are adequate for the challenges that modern MNEs create. In the final part, Muzaffer Eroglu proposes solutions to the problems of tort liability of MNEs.

Gerard McCormack

This book offers an unprecedented and detailed comparative critique of Anglo-American corporate bankruptcy law. It challenges the standard characterisation that US law in the sphere of corporate bankruptcy is ‘pro-debtor’ and UK law is ‘pro-creditor’, and suggests that the traditional thesis is, at best, a potentially misleading over-simplification. Gerard McCormack offers the conclusion that there is functional convergence in practice, while acknowledging that corporate rescue, as distinct from business rescue, still plays a larger role in the US. The focus is on corporate restructurings with in-depth scrutiny of Chapter 11 of the US Bankruptcy Code and the UK Enterprise Act, and offers other comparative oversights.

Corporate Governance in the 21st Century

Japan’s Gradual Transformation

Edited by Luke Nottage, Leon Wolff and Kent Anderson

The ‘lost decade’ of economic stagnation in Japan during the 1990s has become a ‘found decade’ for regulatory and institutional reform. Nowhere is this more evident than in corporate law. In 2005, for example, a spate of reforms to the Commercial Code culminated in the new Company Act, a statute promising greater organisational flexibility and shareholder empowerment for Japanese corporations competing in a more globalised economy. But does this new law herald a more ‘Americanised’ system of corporate governance? Has Japan embraced shareholder primacy over its traditional loyalty to other key stakeholders such as ‘main banks’, core employees, and partners within diffuse corporate (keiretsu) groups? This book argues that a more complex ‘gradual transformation’ is unfolding in Japan – a process evident in many other post-industrial economies.
