Pettet's Company Law Company Law and Corporate Finance by John Lowry, Arad Reisberg

Pettet, Lowry & Reisberg's Company Lawoffers a sophisticated and comprehensive overview of company law doctrine coupled with thorough analysis of the context within which the black letter rules operate. Company Law provides analysis of the theories, policies and wider social, economic and political influences which underpin the legal principles. The authors present the complexities of the subject in a clear, highly readable manner which is accessible and manageable for students.


John Lowry and Arad Reisberg rise more than admirably to the task of assimilating, explaining and analysing this vast corpus of legal material. The text is pellucidly clear, analytically precis, judicious in its balance in dealing with the various topics, comprehensive, and always cognisant of the policy issues. The contributors have done justice to the legacy of Pettet's previous editions. Professor Dan Prentice, Oxford, UCL and Erskine Chambers A must-have book for anyone teaching and/or having an interest in Company Law. It is written in an engaging and clear style, and manages to make an otherwise dry subject rather lively and topical without compromising on the detail of the substantive law.

Dr Renginee Pillay, University of Surrey

An excellent homage to Pettet. An intelligent and literary read. Useful and comprehensive.

Dr Paul Omar, University of Sussex

For anyone interested in, or studying, company law, Pettet's Company Law: Company and Capital Markets is an invaluable text? For an area of law which is notoriously complex, [it is] lucidly written. It provides both a thought-provoking and engaging consideration of the law.
