Company law is the back-bone of Chambers’ work, with a particular emphasis on company litigation. We cover all aspects of company law — from formation to dissolution, including mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, reductions and reorganisations of capital, Stock Exchange and other regulatory requirements, meetings, directors’ duties, shareholder rights and remedies, and all other aspects of company law. By specialising in this way, we have been able to build up a common fund of expertise in areas of law and practice that the text books and reported cases often do not cover.
The Companies Act 2006 involves the most significant exercise of amending and consolidating company law for generations. It raises numerous new issues to vex company lawyers. As specialists in this area, members of Chambers are well placed to deal with these issues.
Many members of Chambers have collaborated with a number of academics, solicitors and accountants to produce OUP’s new Annotated Guide to the Companies Acts. This provides detailed and comprehensive commentary on the new legislation. Other 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.
