Directors Liability: A Worldwide Review, third edition
Kluwer Law International, September 2016

Directors' Liability is a source of reference for international business lawyers published in conjunction with the International Bar Association. It is a comparative study of a crucial issue in corporate law, which provides practitioners with a powerful and decisive tool for ascertaining and comparing the law affecting directors' liability in today's globalizing economies.

The book covers nearly fifty jurisdictions worldwide and includes eight jurisdictions previously not covered. The third edition offers senior lawyers in major firms the opportunity to provide concise, detailed, and easy-to-understand summaries on their 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.

Experts Raimonds Slaidiņš and Reinis Sokolovs are co-authors of the Latvia chapter of the book.
