Corporate governance in financial institutions has come under the spotlight since the banking crisis in the UK in 2008-9. In many respects, the banking business raises unique problems for corporate governance that are not found in other corporate sectors. The Law on Corporate Governance in Banks is the first work to provide a detailed survey and practical examination of key topical issues in the corporate governance of banks and financial institutions, including governance structure, collective board responsibility, directors' liability, shareholders, and risk management. Combining the insight and expertise of leading corporate lawyers in the field with rigorous academic analysis, the book unpicks and clarifies the legal issues that confront corporate and banking law practitioners when advising banks and financial institutions.
