  • Promotion of shareholder engagement – enhancing powers available to proxies and increasing the rights of indirect investors
  • Reform of the audit system to limit auditor liability and enhance audit quality
  • Codification of directors’ duties
  • Full statement of the law as it affects private companies
  • Reform and modernisation of company law as a whole

This timely book provides expert commentary on the key provisions of the Act, and how they will affect the practice of company law. It includes the full text of the Act.
