The CLP Legal Practice Guides explain in detail the principles of each area of legal practice and provide worked examples, checklists, model forms and relevant legislation. Published annually, they are ideal points of reference for students studying the Legal Practice Course, and for practitioners as a means of keeping up with the latest developments.

Public Companies and Equity Finance offers a clear and practical examination of the legal and regulatory framework within which public companies operate. The guide examines all aspects of the life of a public company, including the IPO, the regulatory regime, corporate governance issues and listed company transactions. Particular emphasis is given to those areas which, typically, junior lawyers will experience. Throughout the text, the lawyer's role is placed in context and attention is given to the roles of other advisers to public companies where relevant to the lawyer.
