This book provides an overview of the directors and officers landscape within and outside of the United States, with particular emphasis on those jurisdictions where the majority of business interests are non-US based.

“The Global Directors and Officers Deskbook is an indispensable guide to officers and directors of multinational companies and those who advise them. To have the ability, in one volume, to get a global overview of the risks directors and officers face under the laws of the major world economies, permits busy executives help shape their conduct in accordance with the laws of the countries in which they operate. It also lets them know the risks they face if they slip. This book is clearly a must have.”
