The Law of Companies, 3rd edition

The Law of Companies, 3rd edition

Thomas B. Courtney

"An essential book for anyone whose business it is to know and to implement or operate Irish company law…The third edition…hardly needs any recommendation from me in order to succeed to its rightful position as one of Ireland’s leading legal textbooks. It will sell itself to a wide variety of readers across the professions, academe and the business world."  Michael McDowell SC, Irish Times, November 2012

"Like the previous editions, this is beautifully put together. As well as being thoroughly and rigorously researched, it is clear, articulate and practical. I commend it as the definitive textbook on Irish company law and unreservedly recommend it as essential for every solicitor’s library."  Law Society of Ireland’s Gazette, February 2013

The structure of the third edition of this highly regarded title mirrors the forthcoming Companies (Amendment) Bill, which will hold significant changes for companies operating in Ireland. The work has been expanded and revised to account for changes in legislation and important case law.

Six New Chapters:
