ABDUL MAJID BIN NABI BAKSH

      Business law in Malaysia / Abdul Majid bin Nabi Baksh, Krishnan Arjunan. - Second edition. - Petaling Jaya : LexisNexis, 2014

This book adopts a refreshing approach in the treatment of the selected business law topics. It eschews the " bare bones" notational approach offered by some texts as well as the detailed technical explanation of legal principles adopted by others and presents an in-depth exposition of the various topics in prose that is clear, concise and readable. Case authorities are drawn from the United Kingdom and other common law jurisdictions where relevant, to supplement the extensive reference to local cases in the context of the Contracts Act and other legislation. The authors have drawn on their extensive experience in professional legal practice, teaching business law in diverse jurisdictions and a track record of academic research and publication in Malaysia and elsewhere.

ASEAN and regional free trade agreements / edited By Christopher Findlay. - London : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2015

Efforts to use existing trade agreements to build a larger regional agreement face many challenges. This book considers this problem with reference to ASEAN's current agreements with key partners and the interest to build the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). The analysis of the options is framed by a focus on the use of supply chains in international business. Issues considered include those related to reductions in tariffs, trade facilitation, the treatment of investment and of services and the definition of rules of origin. The work is informed by case studies of supply chains in automobile and electronics, and in a professional service sector. The book provides a set of priority actions for better progress in taking a bottom-up approach to building RCEP.

COMPARATIVE corporate governance : a functional and international analysis / edited by Andreas Fleckner and Klaus J. Hopt. - New York : Cambridge University Press, 2013

The business corporation is one of the greatest organizational inventions, but it creates risks both for shareholders and for third parties. To mitigate these risks, legislators, judges, and corporate lawyers have tried to learn from foreign experiences and adapt their regulatory regimes to them. In the last three decades, this approach has led to a stream of corporate and capital market law reforms unseen before. Corporate governance, the system by which companies are directed and controlled, is today a key topic for legislation, practice, and academia all over the world.
