Summary provided by the publisher:


Contemporary Company Law has quickly established itself as a leading resource on South African company law for legal practitioners, company law specialists and academics. It has been increasingly relied on and referred to with approval by the High Courts, the Supreme Court of Appeal and the Constitutional Court. Contemporary Company Law is a comprehensive and advanced company law text. It is much more than a mere narrative of the Companies Act 71 of 2008 or of the decisions of the courts. Its approach is to expound, explain, or clarify the legal principles and statutory provisions. In writing this third edition, apart from updating the text to incorporate the extensive development of many of the provisions of the Companies Act and the leading cases on the subject, the rapid globalisation of company law has also been taken into account. This edition contains updated discussions on those foreign jurisdictions that have exerted a strong influence on moulding the Companies Act of 2008, such as US, English, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand law. The increased complexity of company law makes Contemporary Company Law even more useful for busy legal practitioners and judges seeking a ready and reliable insight into a particular aspect of company law.”
