Enforcement: A trans-Tasman comparison
New Zealand law review (2005)
  • John Farrar
Extract: Corporate governance represents a symbiosis of law and self-regulation that ultimately branches into business ethics. Enforcement plays some part in this, but usually in the more extreme cases only. Enforcement then represents the pathology of corporate governance. Enforcement entails an enforcer and, in the case of legal enforcement, this is usually a regulatory body that employs a variety of techniques: criminal prosecutions, civil penalty proceedings, civil actions, intervention in third party legal actions, assistance to third parties, and investigations and reports. Included in these are preservative actions and recovery actions.
