The third edition takes into account several important changes in the law and the continuing debate on corporate governance of the Cadbury, Greenbury and Hampel Reports, as well as setting out the incoming government’s plans for company law reform. Company law is a growth area more so, probably, than any other area of law. It reaches into many other areas of law and, of course, is in a constant state of evolution. For example, auditor’s negligence, investment law and the FSA, administration orders and minority remedies are areas that are fast developing. These areas are explored as well as the main areas of company law: the company and other business organisations; types of company; setting up of the company; managing the company; reconstructing the company; supervision of company law. In this book the author has succeeded in presenting a comprehensive and thought provoking text, setting out in a clear, lucid language the information needed to ensure successful preparation for the company law examinations. the aim of the book is to provide a clear and comprehensive exposition of company law as an essential supplement to lectures.
All aspects of company law are covered, including insider dealing, takeovers, liquidation and company investigations. The treatment of each subject is precise and comprehensive. The books are divided into chapters. Each chapter is presented logically, starting with the basic issues of each topic and moving on to more refined matters. In addition, in order to make the textbook as useful as possible to the reader, the issues discussed, together with the relevant cases and statutes, are summarised at the end of each chapter.
