Boyle & Birds' Company Law is a well established leading textbook based on Gore-Browne on Companies. It combines a comprehensive and authoritative exploration of law and practice with an examination of the theoretical issues, making it ideal reading for both students on degree courses and those taking professional examinations. Now in its 8th edition, it has been revised in light of the UK Corporate Governance Code 2010 and case-law developments including:

  • The Supreme Court decision in Re Paycheck 3 Services Ltd on meaning of de facto director
  • Recent decisions regarding derivative claims - Kiani v Cooper, Mission Capital v Sinclair, Iesini v Westrop Holdings
  • Consideration of the implications of Eurosail, Bloom v Pensions Regulator, Goldacre, and Re Stanford International
  • Important new case-law on schemes of arrangement including Re Bluebrook and Re Lehman Bros International (Europe)
