Pettet's Company Law:Company and Capital Markets Law

Description

"John Lowry and Arad Reisberg rise more than admirably to the task of assimilating, explaining and analysing this vast corpus of legal material. The text is pellucidly clear, analytically précis, judicious in its balance in dealing with the various topics, comprehensive, and always cognisant of the policy issues. The contributors have done justice to the legacy of Pettet's previous editions." Professor Dan Prentice, Oxford, UCL and Erskine Chambers

Thoroughly revised and rewritten to take into account the fundamental changes brought about by the Companies Act 2006, this new edition of Pettet’s Company Law provides a thought provoking textbook on all areas of Company and Capital Markets Law as covered on university courses.

Pettet’s Company Law is a thoughtful, contextual and policy led treatment of company law suitable for LLB and LLM students or those looking for a good base to further research in the area.

Features

The new edition retains its unique coverage of capital markets and securities regulation while more detail has been added to:

Reader Review(s)

 

“Extremely well written and has very good clear explanations of the difficult areas of company law. I also think he does very well in contextualising much of his text so he gives students a genuine feel for the subject”
