BUL 3320 Derivative Actions German Laws Discussion
Today, most of the claims brought against directors and officers inthe United States are those alleged in shareholders derivativelawsuits. Other nations, however, put more restrictions on the use ofsuch lawsuits. German law, for example, does not provide for derivativelitigation, and a corporations duty to its employees is just assignificant as its duty to the shareholder-owners of the company. TheUnited Kingdom has no statute authorizing derivative actions, which arepermitted only to challenge directors actions that the shareholderscould not legally ratify. Japan authorizes derivative actions but alsopermits a company to sue the plaintiff-shareholder for damages if theaction is unsuccessful.
