Now in its third edition, this popular, fully-updated title explains the law on shareholders' agreements in a clear and comprehensible style. It guides the reader through a typical transaction, highlighting the commercial issues facing the client and ultimately the solicitor as draftsman. It examines how a shareholders' agreement can be unravelled in the event of insolvency or other reason for termination. The CD-ROM includes all the precedents, which have been developed and updated. New to this edition: reforms made by the Companies Act 2006 following full implementation to a range of relevant topics including meetings, shareholder remedies, Model Articles of Association, directors' duties and electronic communications; changes in insolvency law and practice affecting shareholders' agreements - especially of note with the tightening of credit conditions, escalation of costs and more businesses fearing insolvency; other important areas such as proxies, tax issues relating to the Finance Act 2006, recent case law (e.g. Gamlestaden v Baltic and Bookmakers Afternoon v Amalgamated Racing and Re Neath Rugby Club); and, New precedents relating to quasi-partnership companies.
