Company law is traditionally presented as a complex set of rules shaped by statute and common law. This book adopts a different approach. By looking at empirical studies of the behaviour of firms of all sizes (including multinationals) the author of this book offers a fresh way of understanding the actual operation of company law, the way firms do business, the organization of firms, as well as apparently familiar topics such as shareholders, directors, employees, and managers.

This book is aimed at undergraduate students of company law. It should also be of interest to students of business studies, accountancy and economics.
