Hollington on Shareholder's Rights provides guidance for readers on the statutory remedies for the protection of minority shareholders with coverage/guidance also of articles of association and shareholders' agreements; the fiduciary duties of directors; restrictions on the power of the majority under general principles of equity and the principles of partnership law (such as good faith) which have been adopted in company law.
