Review(s) from previous edition

"I have found the Annotated Companies Legislation immensely useful. It contains a detailed, clear and authoritative commentary on the core statutory materials in a single and portable (if you have a large briefcase!) volume. I would recommend it highly. - Nick Segal, Freshfields, Bruckhaus Deringer LLP

"Annotated Companies Legislation is both comprehensive and practical, providing invaluable commentary to the Companies Act 2006 and written in an accessible and engaging style by its distinguished authors. In a handy single paperback volume, this will become an indispensible companion for those practising in this field." - Michael Green QC, Fountain Court

"In comparison to other available commentaries of the Companies Act 2006, Annotated Companies Legislation will stand out not only as a very accessible general commentary for practitioners but also as an extremely useful source of other relevant legislation, regulation and case law." - Simon Jay, Partner, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton

"Review of Annotated Companies Acts looseleaf: "We make regular use of the Annotated Companies Acts, which provides a helpful commentary on this new and complex legislation and is an invaluable resource as practitioners and their clients get to grips with the new law."" - David Coleman, MacFarlanes LLP
