Company Law Essentials

Josephine Bisacre, Claire McFadzean


Introduces you to the laws surrounding UK companies

Companies are created by the operation of law and function like artificial persons. As such, they are also restricted by law in what they can and cannot do. Company Law Essentials guides you through how companies are created, governed and protected by UK law. End-of-chapter summary sections of essential facts help you to remember the key points, and essential cases show how the law has been enforced and developed.
