This is a new and substantially expanded edition of the author's 'Russian Commercial Law' (2001) which has become the standard resource in this area. Compared to the rather chaotic situation in the 1990s, the system of commercial law in Russia has stabilised in the 2000s. Blatant abuses have become less common with the Joint Stock Company Law amendments taking effect and the new Insolvency Law being enacted. The book represents a comprehensive and in-depth study of current Russian commercial law encompassing various areas, from Company law, Banking Law, Natural Resources Law to International Commercial Arbitration. A new chapter on Environmental Law was added in the light of its significance for major natural resources and infrastructure projects. With the expertise of the author who has been involved in Russian Law studies and practice for some decades, the book is intended both for practitioners who have dealings with Russia and for academics and students.
