This new looseleaf provides a detailed guide to the impact of the Companies Act 2006 on company law and practice.The Act provides the most fundamental change to company law in the last 20 years, reforming many aspects of the legislation including much debated areas such as directors' duties and financial assistance. This new looseleaf covers the new law and the surviving parts of the existing regime by way ofa section-by-section commentary which highlights the developments in the law and provides guidance on the impact of these changes.The commentary and legislation is organised according to topic and, as the law develops, will include all substantive regulations with relevant commentary. Additionally derivation/destination tables will assist readers with tracking the development of the legislation and allow ease of navigationaround the new regime.Practitioners and academics alike will need this new work, written from the perspective of the new legislation and providing a complete picture of the complex new regime. Drawing on committee reports and Hansard to shed light on interpretation of the new legislation, this work will fast become thenew authority on company law.
Professor John Birds is Professor of Commercial Law at the University of Manchester.
