First published in 2006, Understanding Chinese Company Law covers the major topics in the area of company law in this fast-changing country. This third edition has incorporated the discussions on new laws and regulations that have sprung up over the past few years, including the China Company Law Amendment 2013 and the new Hong Kong Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622).
