Directors' Liability: A Worldwide Review
Edited by Alexander Loos
This acclaimed reference book for international business lawyers first appeared in 2006, with a second edition in 2010. Now in its third edition, and once again published in conjunction with the International Bar Association, this comparative study of a crucial issue in corporate law gives practitioners a powerful and decisive tool for ascertaining and comparing the law affecting directors' liability in today's globalizing economies.
Covering nearly fifty jurisdictions worldwide (including eight not previously covered), the third edition affords senior lawyers in major firms the opportunity to provide concise, detailed, and easy-to-understand summaries on his or her home law on directors' liability. Authors whose research appeared in earlier editions have updated their chapters, and the case law summarized and analysed now reflects published cases through the end of March 2016.
The contributions describe the relevant law in force in each particular jurisdiction, along with an insightful discussion of trends and future prospects. For each of the different jurisdictions the authors detail and explain such factors as the following:
Where applicable, coverage also includes the legal implications of jurisdictional variations in such matters as judicial review, lawyer directorship, directors' reliance on outside professionals, and the effect of the European Action Plan. References have been thoroughly updated throughout, and include many new online sources.
This publication will be of enormous value to legal practitioners, whether in private practice or in the legal department of a globally active company, as a comprehensive and easy means of access to the law of foreign jurisdictions on directors' liability.
This book is designed to help you achieve one specific goal. It's not designed to give you the philosophies of conducting research. It's not designed to give you a background in a specific academic discipline or a specific topic. It's not designed to give you theory. It's designed specifically to instruct you in the practicalities of the writing process used to create strong, thorough, and potentially bulletproof literature reviews. This book is the culmination of years of research experience. It's also the culmination of several years of teaching writing and critical thinking to doctoral students. Although it began as a tool for doctoral students, it has been expanded to be useful for everyone from senior high school students through doctoral candidates working on developing their first literature review or a larger literature review than they normally develop. It has been created for everyone from academics to new business entrepreneurs with good ideas who are trying to write their first reviews to support the new idea they're proposing.

Ever since the airline was privatized in 1987 it grew to become one of the global premium airlines. At the core of the brand lies the motto 'To Fly. To Serve.' "Always putting you at the heart of everything we engineer, innovate and pioneer. Today and tomorrow." The airline is also known to be a pioneer in green technology with the goal to set standards in responsible aviation. Consequently, the company engages in fuel innovation, purchases fuel-saving aircrafts and supports community projects and appropriate government regulations. To understand BA's business model in detail, first a SWOT analysis with a PESTLE analysis is conducted and then Porter's Five Forces Model is used."
