View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This well-established work on the law relating to minority shareholders provides practitioners with the most detailed reference on the subject.

The new edition includes a chapter on foreign aspects of minority shareholder litigation which covers all of the jurisdictional and procedural issues concerned with litigation involving foreign companies and foreign parties. There are also substantially more detailed chapters on directors' duties and derivative claims.

The new edition includes analysis of many important decisions covering the following areas:
· Derivative claim procedure and alternative remedies
· Unfairly prejudicial conduct, attribution of responsibility and appropriate parties
· Personal rights of shareholders, their liability and piercing the corporate veil
· The mechanics of share valuation

As in previous editions, the fifth edition provides the best-organised, and most accessible analysis available of the application of legislation and authorities to difficult areas of practice. It contains a very detailed treatment of procedural matters and incudes practical guidance and tools such as precedents.

This is an excellent guide to what is undoubtedly both a highly technical and broad jurisdiction. The authors, all practising barristers, set out the contents of the books chapters each described by way of the type of claim or the nature of the relief sought, with precision. The material is accessible and up to date and supported by authority at every turn ... This book is an excellent guide to the remedies available to minority shareholders and I recommend it to practitioners working in this area and others who have occasion to do so from time to time. (Simon Duncan, Solicitor, Moon Beever Solicitors)
