"The book is a crucial addition to applied corporate governance, especially given the scarcity of similar titles that situate the law and practice of directors’ general duties in its legal, commercial and economic context. It is a primary source of information for practising company and commercial law solicitors, barristers, corporate management and legal academics, as well as an excellent point of reference for postgraduate students."Journal of Business Law
"The book thus works well as an introduction to the subject for readers approaching it with no prior knowledge, and as a comprehensive reference drawing together a range of primary and secondary authorities (with insightful critical and comparative elements) for readers who are more conversant with this area of law. Although the back cover indicates that the book is invaluable for solicitors, barristers, in-house lawyers, company secretaries and administrators (presumably in keeping with the publisher's outlook), it is a worthy addition to undergraduate and postgraduate company law reading lists...It is very much to his credit, Andrew Keay has succeeded in producing a student-friendly book"
"this carefully researched and copiously footnoted book should be considered an essential purchase for company directors ... All readers, whether lay or professional, will find the book an excellent research resource ... In all, the book will certainly be an invaluable addition to the professional library."
"An up to date, well written and easily accessible source of information for company directors and everyone who advises company directors or who has an interest in this field"German-British Chamber of Industry & Commerce
"the commentary is thorough and excellent...The chapter on derivative proceeding also deserves special mention for its user friendly explanation of the not uncomplicated law and practice.Bree Taylor, Partner, Memery Crystal LLP
All in all, a very useful store cupboard textbook, which will no doubt continue to be popular and oft cited as the case law develops further under the Companies Act 2006."
"every director should be required to read this publication irrespective of the size of the company ... [we] can thoroughly recommend this as a very practical book"International Company and Commercial Law Review
"well-structured ... an excellent source to gain a first impression of directors' duties but also to deepen one's knowledge"German-British Chamber of Industry & Commerce
"A dedicated and comprehensive guide to navigating this minefield of uncertainty for directors and their legal advisors ... a valuable addition to the literature on the subject and should be a staple of any company law collection"John Tribe, KPMG Lecturer in Restructuring, Kingston Law School
“A must-have for those engaged with directors duties … the diversity of expert opinions adds to the quality of the book … also of no lesser value to corporate law practitioners; from in-house to ex-house lawyers and corporate and practising accountants”
