Introduction to Company Law

By Paul P. Davies


Written by one of the foremost experts in the area, Paul Davies’ Introduction to Company Law provides a comprehensive conceptual introduction, giving readers a clear framework through which to understand the intricacies of company law.

The five core features of company law-separate legal personality, limited liability, centralized management, shareholder control, and transferability of shares-are clearly laid out and examined, and the book explains how these features are used to provide an organizational structure for the conduct of business. The book also discusses the legal strategies that can be used to deal with agency relationships arising among shareholders, managers, creditors, and employees and the trade-offs that have been made in British company law to reconcile competing interests.

Fully revised to take into account the Companies Act 2006, and including a new chapter on international company law which considers the role of European Community Law, this new edition in the renowned Clarendon Law Series offers a concise and stimulating introduction to company law.
