As the only single volume commentary with a complete set of Company Law materials, Annotated Companies Legislation offers the legal practitioner a detailed section-by-section guide to the Companies Act 2006 and surviving parts of older legislation.

The second edition of this well-regarded commentary provides up-to-date analysis on all recent developments and includes, in particular, a review of dynamic areas such as derivative claims, unfair prejudice, and directors' duties.

This one-stop resource offers guidance on the interpretation of the law and the impact of changes made by the Companies Act 2006 by reference to case law, Hansard and Committee Reports and includes copies of all substantive secondary material. It is designed with the user in mind and provides derivation and destination tables which ease navigation around the 2006 regime. The book is organised according to the topics covered in the Parts of the 2006 Act and paragraph numbers reference the Parts and sections of the Act enhancing usability and making research quicker and easier.

This second edition offers excellent value for money and a much-needed fresh commentary on companies legislation. It provides a single, convenient and portable volume leaving the reader with no need to research elsewhere.
