This new edition of Kevin McGuinness’s widely cited treatise on corporate law covers the wealth of case law and legislative changes since 1999. Discover how major corporate scandals and amendments to the Canadian Business Corporations Act and Ontario Business Corporations Act have impacted the way your clients operate—and what your new responsibilities involve.

Canadian Business Corporations Law, formerly known as The Law and Practice of Canadian Business Corporations combines all commentary and analysis into a convenient, user-friendly volume that you can easily bring to court or the boardroom.
