Ask about company law and many people will tell you it is technical, dry and difficult to understand: Company Law in Ireland brings this to an end. Over the course of twenty chapters the book covers all the traditional areas, using the most up-to-date Irish and English case law as well as the most established cases. What sets Company Law in Ireland apart is that it is delivered in a way that is more accessible than any other text in the area. Key concepts are clearly explained, illustrated by accounts of cases where plaintiffs and defendants are referred to by their names, and the facts come alive.
While company law is set for a massive reform, as all of the Acts become consolidated in one in the near future, that will not take place ‘til 2015, but where necessary, the author has indicated what those changes will be.
