Minority Shareholders (7th Edition): Law, Practice, and Procedure

Victor Joffe KC, David Drake, Giles Richardson KC, Daniel Lightman KC, Tim Collingwood KC, Thomas Elias, Zahler Bryan


This authoritative work, now in its seventh edition, is the most detailed reference source on the law relating to minority shareholders. As more and more legal emphasis is put on corporate governance, and as the influence of shareholder activism continues to grow, this book is the leading resource for practitioners requiring up-to-date, detailed information on the rights and remedies available to minority shareholders. The book provides detailed and incisive coverage of section 994 petitions, derivative claims, just and equitable winding-up petitions, and the foreign aspects of shareholder disputes, as well as shareholders' personal claims against companies and the rights conferred on them by the Companies Act 2006. The seventh edition examines all significant recent case law from the UK, including Sevilleja v Marex Financial Ltd on reflective loss, and Loveridge v Loveridge, Re Westshield Ltd, and UTB plc v Sheffield Utd on unfair prejudice. The work also considers case law from courts of other jurisdictions with analogous shareholder provisions, in particular Hong Kong, Singapore, and the Caribbean.
