Company Law Handbook: the Fundamentals

Company Law Handbook: the Fundamentals cover


Charts the company life-cycle from pre-incorporation, through incorporation and culminates with the winding up process, addressing, in detail, the essential requirements in establishing a company, including the steps, procedures and documents that are required during the existence of the corporation.

The handbook highlights significant cases and principal judgments that impact on UK company law.

Checklists guide you through legislative provisions and their application to the day-to-day running of a business throughout its life-cycle, and key definitions at the end of each chapter make it accessible by simplifying the legal concepts involved.
