About Equity, Trusts and Commerce

This collection of essays, written by leading commentators from across the common law world, examines a range of topics concerning equity and trusts in the commercial context. The essays investigate the way in which doctrines derived from the equitable jurisdiction interact with and shape various areas of the law, including company law, commercial law and agency law. Subjects considered include the difficulties in identifying trust assets in the commercial context; the court's role in supervising the trust; and the remedies available in cases of fiduciary or trustee wrongdoing. This book will be of interest to both academics and practitioners working in these difficult areas of equity and commercial law.

Equity, Trusts and Commerce offers something for everyone, students, practitioners, and academics. While students may read the essays to deepen the understanding of the interaction of equity and commercial law, practitioners will certainly appreciate the theoretical discussions of case law and the several practical implications ... This work definitely enriches Hart's series in Private Law, and is a must have in every common law lawyer's (but not only) shelf.” –  Piergiuseppe Pusceddu, Trusts & Trustees
