Corporate and Commercial

Corporate and Commercial

The rule of law not only allows people to understand what is expected of them in their
personal capacities but also sets forth rules for businesses so that they, too, know what is
expected of them in their dealings and transactions. Terence Lau and Lisa Johnson
