Company Law

Company law was historically the core of Chambers’ work, with a particular emphasis on company litigation. While we are now regarded as a leading commercial / commercial chancery set, this legacy means we remain a pre-eminent force in the practise of company law.

We comprehensively cover all aspects of company law from formation to dissolution and related disputes, including:

  • Shareholder disputes, including unfair prejudice petitions and derivative actions
  • Directors’ duties
  • Meetings
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Corporate finance
  • Reductions and reorganisations of capital
  • Stock Exchange and other regulatory requirements

Our members have appeared in many of the most important company law cases in the UK and abroad, including the significant recent Supreme Court decision on the reflective loss principle, Sevilleja v Marex Financial Ltd.

Our deep history in the field means we have been able to build up a common fund of expertise in areas of law and practise that the text-books and reported cases often do not cover.

Members of Chambers include the contributing editors of Tolley’s Company Law, Atkins Court Forms on Companies and the Encyclopaedia of Forms & Precedents on Companies, and were the leading contributors to OUP’s Annotated Guide to the Companies Act 2006.
