Abstract

This article examines the rules relating to the common law derivative action in Malaysia and the justifications for a statutory derivative action. It concludes that the Malaysian common law derivative action suffers from the problems associated with the remedy in United Kingdom because of the propensity of Malaysian courts to refer to decisions in that country.
