This book is a detailed overview of the corporate and financial laws of Korea and analyzes current issues within those fields from both academic and practical perspectives, providing a unique tool for understanding Korean law in a business and financial context. The approach of the book is two-fold. On the one hand the book offers valuable insight into the fundamental principles of Korean business law, and landmark cases in the field. On the other hand there is extensive analysis of more recent developments and of current issues raised by recent court cases. The book combines coverage of Korean corporate law and Korean financial law and includes detailed examination of corporate law issues such as director liability, minority shareholder protection, and the dynamic practice area of mergers and acquisitions, and of financial law topics, including private equity, structured finance and foreign financial institutions. A rich and extensive resource with insight from leading scholars and practitioners, Korean Business Law will be of great benefit both to lawyers who have clients with business interests in Korea, and to scholars of international corporate law and governance.
