The third edition of Kevin McGuinness's widely cited treatise on corporate law has been fully updated to take into account the significant degree of legislative development and the enormous expansion of the volume of case law which has occurred since the previous edition was published in 2007. This increase in content has required the text to increase from one volume to three.
Provides comprehensive analysis, clarity and coverage on the gamut of Canadian corporate law topics. The author has introduced new subjects, reorganized chapters, and explored existing topics in greater detail. The full three-volume text has been reworked along more thematic lines:
- Volume 1: General Principles
- Volume 2: Corporate Governance
- Volume 3: Shareholders, Stakeholders and their Rights and Remedies
For comparative purposes, a cross section of the most significant new case law from other important common law jurisdictions – particularly the United States, United Kingdom and Australia – is included in those areas where Canadian law most closely resembles that of the jurisdiction concerned.
New In This Edition
- Expanded to 3 volumes.The subjects covered in Volume 3 focus more on the analysis and discussion of shareholders, stakeholders and their rights and remedies; the first volume is foundational in nature, covering such topics as incorporation, corporate personality and taxation and the second volume focuses more on corporate governance issues as well as the law governing the financing of corporation operations (including the process of financial control)
- The new edition covers the significant degree of legislative development in the last ten years, particularly the shift towards a more national and co-ordinated approach towards securities legislation as well as the steady spread of the Canadian Business Corporations Act approach to incorporation across Canada
- Specifically for Volume 2:
- New chapter on the Securities Regulation and Insider Trading, and its growing importance and impact on corporations in Canada
- New chapter on Record Keeping, Auditing and Disclosure including such topics as Director Disclosure, the Audit Process and Standards, and Director and Auditor liability. Greatly expanded coverage of Corporate Governance issues, including a new chapter on the key aspects of Corporate Governance, as well as a new chapter dedicated to discussing the role of Directors in an Integrated Governance Process and a new chapter dedicated to the Day to Day Operation of the Corporation
- Updated and expanded chapters on such topics as Director and Officer Duties, Director and Officer Liabilities, Debt Financing and Equity Financing, to take into account the significant volume of case law and legislative developments which has occurred in the publication of the 2nd Edition in 2007
