This highly regarded and influential text is essential reading for company law students and practitioners, and is regularly cited with approval in Irish courts.

The book provides guidance on every aspect of Irish company law from a company's formation to its winding up and examinership. It also examines the core areas of corporate personality, capital, borrowing, membership and administration.

The sixth edition retains the clear and navigable structure of previous editions and is updated to account for changes brought about by:

* Brexit;
* Covid measures;
* Companies (Statutory Audits) Act 2018;
* Companies (Accounting) Act 2017.

Recent case law is also analysed, in particular in relation to directors' duties, company charges, liability of parent companies for subsidiaries, restriction and disqualification of directors and the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement.

This title is included in Bloomsbury Professional's Irish Company and Commercial Law online service.
