Series contains explanations of judicial decisions to help users understand application of law in practice in China
CCH China, a Wolters Kluwer business under Wolters Kluwer China today announces the launch of its China Company Law Guide Series in Chinese. The China Company Law Guide Series is dedicated to provide clarity on the application of company law principles and analysis on the issues faced by many companies where formal guidance is ambiguous and difficult to understand.
With China going through rapid changes in their regulatory framework, authoritative commentary becomes more critical for investors, corporations and professional advisers. The launch of the China Company Law Guide Series is timely since the increasing awareness and needs for professionals to raise the quality of their corporate compliance and minimize their legal risk.
CCH’s China Company Law Guide Series contains explanations and commentary of statutes, judicial decisions (as well as conflicting views not addressed in the Judicial Interpretations), administrative practices, commonly found issues and solutions, best practices, worked examples, specimen forms, templates, and checklists – all in the effort to help the users to understand the theory and how the law is applied in practice and quickly launch a follow up.
Designed for in-house legal counsels, company directors and compliance professionals, the CCH’s Company Law Guide Series consists of 4 volumes: Corporate Governance; Bankruptcy and Liquidation; Company Registration and Dissolution; and Company Registration and Dissolution of Foreign Investment Enterprises.
Corporate Governance Volume
Written by a group of Corporate Governance lawyers from Jurisino Law Group, this comprehensive guide covers the legal and practical aspects of how Corporate Governance should be applied to an organization. Specially designed for in-house counsels of companies and investors, the guide analyses the relevant stakeholders and their stakes and dynamically studies corporate governance in the affairs most often discussed by the board of directors and the management, such as labor management, contract management, and intellectual property management. It also discusses external supervisory authorities frequently encountered by companies in China, such as the tax authority and the administration for industry and commerce. A chapter on “Special Corporate Governance Affairs” will be added to cover special corporate governance affairs such as corporate restructuring, mergers, acquisitions and integrations, initial public offering, bankruptcy and liquidation.
“Corporate governance has been a hot topic since 1980s with the availability of many related publications thereafter. However, these publications often take on a similar approach of focusing studies on the static corporate governance institutions. It often resulted to the common believe that Corporate Governance is for publicly traded companies and board of directors only. Leveraging on our global subject matter expertise, CCH’s China Company Law Guide Series – Corporate Governance presents an all-rounded aspects of Corporate Governance that not only include the listed companies but also privately held companies that include foreign invested companies, state-owned companies, and commercial banks”, said Mr. Douglas Qi, Product Management Director of CCH China.
