Written from the perspective of the 2006 regime and authored by leading practitioners and academics in the field, this work provides detailed section-by-section commentary alongside the legislative text of the Companies Act 2006 and surviving parts of the previous legislation. Guidance is given as to interpretation of the law and the impact of changes made by the Companies Act 2006 by reference to case law, Hansard and Committee Reports. Derivation and Destination tables are also included for ease of navigation around the Companies Act 2006. Alongside detailed annotation of the Model Articles of Association and the 1949 and 1985 versions of Table A, the book also provides commentary on the Uncertificated Securities Regulations as well as the full text of a collection of other relevant company law secondary materials. This comprehensive reference, previously published as the Annotated Companies Acts looseleaf, provides excellent value for money and a much needed commentary on companies legislation in a single, convenient and portable volume.

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 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.
