A very useful book for anybody interested in company law, for whatever reason. It covers all the main acts to do with company law, from the Partnership Act of 1890, the Insolvency Act of 1986 and the most recent Companies Act of 2006.
Some real life cases really perplex me. For example, take a look at the accounts of CEREP UK Investment D GP Ltd for the year ended 30 June 2012. The company has no real assets (apart from around £1,018 in the bank) and the only other entry on the balance sheet is amount due to Freeport of £14.9 million.
Can anyone see the point for this company? And is Robert Hodges, director who signed the accounts, really acting in the best interests of this company? At the time Hodges was also director of Freeport, giving the even more relevant question of how he could be acting in the best interests of both companies!
