Directors’ Powers and Duties 2nd ed provides practitioners with a detailed treatment of the New Zealand law relating to directors’ powers and (civil law) duties, one of the most important and complex aspects of company law.
While New Zealand law in this area has some unique aspects, it shares its basic features with other common law jurisdictions, so this book draws heavily on Commonwealth case law, particularly that of Australia and England. It furnishes comparative insights on points of difference, and refers to leading academic commentary, including that from the United States.
In the many areas where the law is unclear or contentious, Directors’ Powers and Duties comprehensively analyses the various options and attempts to provide clear solutions. It also supplies useful sketches of leading cases to illustrate the points of law in each section of the book.
Written by one of New Zealand's top scholars in company law, this second edition includes the latest developments in this important area of law since its last publication in 2009.
