Shareholder liability was once discussed only in terms of liability for the debts of the corporation in which the shareholders hold interest. That is now a shifting scene, influenced in the main by the emergence of shareholder activism and derivative litigation, with its attendant increase of risk for officers and directors, and "fee shifting" provisions in corporate bylaws, allowing corporations to seek legal fees from unsuccessful shareholder plaintiffs. In this edition of the Comparative Law Yearbook for International Business, practitioners from 10 jurisdictions examine recent developments in shareholder liability. The introductory chapter "Liability of Shareholders in Modern Company Law", sets the stage for reports from Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Croatia, Germany, Indonesia, Mexico, Portugal, and the United States.

Post-Hearing Issues in International Arbitration includes articles that originally appeared in the Stockholm Arbitration Report (SAR) and the Stockholm International Arbitration Review (SIAR). All of the articles have been extensively revised and updated for this publication. The authors and articles selected include a wide range of perspectives and include judges, arbitrators, seasoned practitioners and well-respected scholars that can account for the first-hand practice-orientated developments of international arbitration. The book is set out in three parts. In Part I, the authors discuss three significant issues related to the conclusion of an international arbitral award: arbitrator deliberations, punitive damages, and post-award interest. Part II attempts to navigate the interesting and often daunting review processes of an international arbitration award. Part III considers a blend of international arbitration recognition and enforcement issues, including jurisdictional hurdles, public policy concerns, primary defences, and the practical requirements of a successful claim.

This book examines the 2010 'Australian Consumer Law' reform package in broader context. It considers parallel re-regulation of consumer credit and other financial markets impacting on consumers. It also compares recent reform initiatives in New Zealand, Australia's closest economic and geo-political partner, as well as developments in other major economies including the European Union, Japan and the United States.In addition, the book examines policy considerations and market transformations, as well as the often complex legislative history associated with recent consumer law reform proposals in Australia and New Zealand. Each substantive chapter usually begins with that broader setting, especially the issues and recommendations of a 2008 Report by Australia's Productivity Commission. Chapters then outline 'how the law works', before offering a critical assessment of the current regime.This book will therefore appeal to policy-makers, researchers, senior law students, and legal practitioners interested in an advanced and wide-ranging analysis of current consumer law issues - particularly in Australia. The 14 contributors are consumer law experts associated with Australasian Consumer Law Roundtables, held annually in Australia and New Zealand since 2007 to bring together academics, regulators and peak consumer group representative.Specific areas covered include: definitions of 'consumers', mandatory quality guarantees and controls over unfair terms in consumer contracts, regulation of unconscionable conduct, a possible general prohibition of 'unfair practices', product liability and safety regulation, responsible lending and 'hardship' provisions in consumer credit, consumer banking and financial advice, vulnerable consumers, interest rate caps, dispute resolution, regulatory powers and e-commerce.
