Corporate governance is essential for the smooth functioning of companies and their ability to create value for shareholders and other stakeholders. This article presents an analysis of the role of company law in promoting corporate governance through a comparative study of different legal frameworks. The article defines and explains the concept and importance of corporate governance, and highlights the relationship between corporate governance and company law. The effectiveness of company law in promoting corporate governance is evaluated, and the challenges faced by legal frameworks for corporate governance are analyzed. The study identifies gaps that exist in these frameworks, and possible solutions for addressing these gaps and challenges are discussed. The article concludes by examining the implications of the study for the theory and practice of corporate governance, and provides recommendations for improving legal frameworks for corporate governance. The study reveals that corporate governance is a complex and multi-faceted concept, and that legal frameworks play a crucial role in promoting good corporate governance practices. The comparative analysis of legal frameworks demonstrates that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to corporate governance, and that different countries have different legal frameworks tailored to their specific needs and challenges. Despite the existence of legal frameworks, challenges such as weak enforcement mechanisms, inadequate stakeholder engagement, and lack of transparency continue to hinder effective corporate governance. To address these challenges, the study recommends the need for better enforcement mechanisms, greater stakeholder engagement, and enhanced disclosure requirements. The study contributes to the literature on corporate governance by providing a comprehensive analysis of the role of company law in promoting corporate governance, and provides directions for future research.
