It can be difficult for students of comparative company law both to understand the internationally relative nature of a legal system and grasp it in practical detail. This book is designed to address that problem. Each chapter begins with a discursive analysis of the laws in Germany, the UK and the USA, framed by a comparative presentation. Chapters also contain edited judicial decisions from at least two of the jurisdictions, which allow readers to perform their own comparisons in more detail and leave room for original analysis and discussion.

This book studies the funding problems with shareholder litigation through a functionally comparative way. In fact, funding problems with shareholder lawsuits may largely discourage potential shareholder litigants who bear high financial risk in pursuing such a claim, but on the other hand they may not have much to gain. Considering the lack of incentives for potential shareholder claimants, effective funding techniques should be in place to make shareholder actions function as a corporate governance tool and discipline corporate management. The book analyzes, among others, the practice of funding shareholder litigation in the Australia, Canada, the UK, the US and Israel, and covers all of the typical approaches being used in financing shareholder litigation in the current world. For instance, Israel and Canada (Quebec and Ontario) are probably unique in having a public funding mechanism for derivative actions and class actions, while Australia is the country where third party litigation funding is originated and is growing rapidly. Based on this comparative research, the last part of this book discusses how to fund shareholder litigation in China in context of its social and legal background and what kind of problems need to be solved if certain funding techniques are used.

In an increasingly universalizing world, operating business in the form of companies is apparently becoming an indispensable aspect of modern commercial life. The major reason that led to the corporate form as the principal method of organization of commercial activity, among other things, is its advantage of limited liability. Limited liability, in its classical sense, implies the insulation of individual shareholders composing the company from the liability of company debts. Yet, the traditional corporate legal theory has confined the advantage of limited liability within the purview of multimember corporations, making it inaccessible to solo investors. However, quite recently, the historical relic of corporate theory that views corporations as a legally personified body of numerous subscribes of shares has undergone a sharp evolution, as have many other business practices and their legal bases. The purpose of this thesis is to look into notable literature on major corporate theories and analyze whether it would be applicable to single member companies (SMC). It also seeks to compare major legal frameworks governing SMC’s in comparative jurisdictions to show the legal and theoretical implications of introducing SMC’s into the Ethiopian corporate legal system.

Among the developments considered are the legal changes that have resulted from the demise of the Soviet empire and of ?socialist ? law; the continuing impact that both European Community law and regional human rights law have had on the internal legal systems of European countries; concomitant tensions toward a revised ?common law of Europe? and toward a closer ?convergence? between civil and common law systems; and renewed attention to the methodological problems faced by comparative law, in part because of these other developments.
