Company Law brings clarity and sophisticated analysis to the ever-changing landscape of company law. Hannigan captures the dynamism of the subject, places the material in context, highlights its relevance and topicality, and guides students through all the major areas studied at undergraduate level.

The book is divided into five distinct sections covering corporate structure (including legal personality and constitutional issues), corporate governance (including directors' duties and liabilities), shareholders' rights and remedies (including powers of decision-making and shareholder engagement), corporate finance (including share and loan capital), and corporate rescue and restructuring (including liabilities arising on insolvency).

The author's accessible writing style and comprehensive approach to the subject makes this an idea textbook for students of company law.
