It takes an innovative approach to company law, from the perspective of accountability for corporate powers and conduct. The first edition of this work quickly became an essential part of many professional libraries, and now this long-awaited second edition has been rewritten to make it even more practical and accessible to practitioners, non-practitioners and students alike. Fully updated with the latest legislative changes and case law it is a must for anyone involved in company Law.

Content in this new edition has been expanded to include two new chapters on cross border insolvency and board fights. The chapters covering Winding Up have been substantially revised in light of changes to Cap 622 and the revised Cap 32. All commentary throughout the text has been updated for brevity and clarity. Additional improvements to the second edition include a focus on the essential fundamentals that are often overlooked, yet form the basis of understanding of the subject matter.
