"This is a highly accessible book.... One of the distinguishing features of this text is that it contains not only a readable and sometimes humorous explanation of the common law and statutues but also addresses corporate theory. The authors deal with some complex topics in a comprehensible fashion.... The narrative leads to both an understanding of the topic under discussion and also the realisation that company law cannot be compartmentalised into clear-cut topics that can be studied in isolation.... surprisingly for a book of just over 400 pages, there are illuminating references where appropriate to the theories underlying company law. This text..stands out for its clarity, whilst still demonstrating the depth of study needed in relation to some of the more complex areas of company law."--Journal of Business Law, September 2004 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The book contains useful summaries of key cases and explains them alongside the legal principles involved so that you can easily recall and refer to them in exams.
Alone the book is not enough - you will need an additional casebook. However, if you are new to company law, then this is a good starting point. A relatively slim volume that is far cry from the daunting lengths of some legal text books, the book clearly defines the essential principles of its topic, without clouding the issue with thousands of footnotes and judgment extracts.
It brings in helpful academic debate where necessary and refers you to some great articles when you wish to pursue a particular debate. For example the rights and wrongs of the Salomon principle.
The latest edition does include references to the Company's Act 2006, and in fact this textbook has proven to be most helpful when going through the longest statutory instument ever drafted by Parliament. I did buy other textbooks for company law but would regularly and most frequently refer to Digam and Lowry.
I can find case study and reasons for sanction of lifting the veil.
There are also civil sanction and criminal sanction available for insider dealing.
I strongly recommend it if you want to know about insider dealing and stock exchange.

The book does not contain details of Company Law relating to the Company Secretary and the necessity or otherwise for this position.Published on 7 Feb. 2012 by James
This book is so compact, very well written. It is a book that departs quite outstandingly from what we are used to in this area of law as the company law is very voluminous. Read morePublished on 24 Nov. 2011 by ololademakinde
