Shares and Share Capital under the Companies Act 2006

Author: Andrew (Professor of Business Law, Manchester University) McGee Format: Hardback Release Date: 16/09/2019

The Companies Act 2006 Act made a number of significant changes to the law on shares and share capital while also retaining many of the provisions of the old law. Some changes are simplifications to the law for private companies, notably on financial assistance, share capital reduction and company buy-back of own shares, as well as the abolition of authorised capital. The whole structure is informed and constrained by the provisions of the Company Law Directives, which are principally applicable to public companies. This book is based on Parts 17, 18, 20, 21 and 22 of the Companies 2006 Act, together with the provisions of the new Table A and Table C. Key areas covered include: * Principles of share capital * Issuing shares * Rights attaching to shares * Transferring shares * Removing capital * Evaluation of the changes under the Companies Act 2006 The work also considers case law doctrines such as improper purposes for issuing shares and case law on those provisions which have not changed but continue to be relevant This second edition is fully updated with analysis of all the latest case law on these provisions.

Corporate Personhood

Corporate Personhood

Author: Susanna Kim Ripken Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/08/2019

The topic of corporate personhood has captured the attention of many who are concerned about the increasing presence, power, and influence of corporations in modern society. Recent Supreme Court cases like Citizens United, Hobby Lobby, and Masterpiece Cakeshop - which solidified the free speech and religious liberty rights of corporations and their owners - have heightened the controversy over treating corporations as persons under the law. What does it mean to say that the corporation is a person, and why does it matter? In Corporate Personhood, Susanna Kim Ripken addresses these questions and highlights the complexity of the corporate personhood concept. Using a broad, interdisciplinary framework - incorporating law, economics, philosophy, sociology, psychology, organizational theory, political science, and linguistics - this highly original work explores the complex, multidimensional nature of corporate personhood and its implications for corporate rights and duties.
