Now in its fourth edition, this leading and comprehensive work focuses entirely on company directors, their duties and responsibilities, their liabilities when things go wrong, and the remedies to put things right. It does so by capturing in one place commentary and analysis of the law relating to company directors, most notably the Companies Act itself and the constantly maturing common law rules and equitable principles, but also the law relating to insolvency, insurance, pensions, taxation, financial services, disqualification and crime.

The latest edition incorporates legislative developments, such as the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020, which amended the Companies Act 2006. The book also analyses recent case law developments relating to company directors from the Supreme Court including; Burnden Holdings (UK) Ltd v Fielding, Singularis Holdings Ltd v Daiwa Capital Markets, Aquila Advisory Ltd v Faichney, Lau v Chu, Kathryn Ma Wai Fong v Wong Kie Yik, Hung v JF Ming Inc, Marex Financial Ltd v Sevilleja, Children's Investment Fund Foundation (UK) v Attorney General, and BTI 2014 LLC v Sequana SA.

This complete reference work, written by practitioners with acknowledged expertise in this field, is an essential reference source for all serious corporate lawyers and scholars.
