The term “corporate law” refers to the laws relating to corporations and their business activities in general. In the New Zealand context this includes the life-cycle of a corporation under the Companies Act 1993 and the effect of other regulatory frameworks such as the Receiverships Act 1993, the Takeovers Act 1993 and the Financial Markets Conduct Act 2013. Corporate Law in New Zealand is a modern, fresh analysis of corporate law in New Zealand that places New Zealand corporations in their historical, current and international context. Key chapters include the impact of the theory of the company on New Zealand corporate law, the nature of corporate enterprise in New Zealand, Maori/iwi companies, directors’ duties, shareholders’ rights, corporate financing, corporate insolvency, relevant financial markets law, and takeovers, amalgamations and arrangements. Selected content is drawn from the Company and Securities Law in New Zealand treatise and has been updated, reworked and significantly expanded to embrace developments in company and corporate law. The experienced author team is led by general editors Susan Watson and Lynne Taylor.
