Students, as well as those involved in company law on a day-to-day basis, can turn to Gower and Davies secure in the knowledge that it will be an interesting, thought provoking and above all understandable exposition of both law and practice.

Gower deals in a clear and in-depth fashion, concentrated on offering a readable approach to core areas. Where case law rules the day, the treatment is clear and lucid, and – while thorough – avoids over-academic presentation.
