This text contains a series of studies of the regulation, under English law, of the range of business organizational structures available to entrepreneurs. It analyzes the commonest of these structures, including limited companies (public and private), groups of companies, privatized enterprises and partnerships, as well as the more specialized forms such as industrial and provident societies, banks, building societies, insurance companies, joint ventures, franchise agreements, limited partnerships and overseas companies.;Set within the context of a period of considerable actual and proposed legal change, the contributions analyze the broad regulatory structure adopted for each of the above business forms, outline the changing patterns of regulation and consider potential future developments. Several broad themes run through the work, including the relationship between the economic desirability of facilitating enterprise and the need to regulate against possible abuse; stakeholder protection; pursuit of risk management strategies and the implications of European harmonization in the business sector.
