Publisher Description:

Business law is one of the most challenging and dynamic areas of law in study and practice. It demands knowledge of more areas of law than any other specialisation. This manual is designed to give apprentice solicitors on the Law Society of Ireland's Professional Practice Course a clear and thorough understanding of practice in the field of Business Law. Published in conjunction with the Law Society of Ireland, the titles in this series provide an essential and unique guide to the law, practice and procedure in Ireland.
The text equips apprentice solicitors with a knowledge of theory and practice in business law areas likely to be encountered throughout their careers. Written by acknowledged experts in the field, each chapter gives a clear overview of its subject, focusing on the practical issues that will face lawyers on an everyday basis. There is an overview of company law with particular emphasis on the mechanics of company formation and Company Registration Office Regulations. Other areas covered include: secretarial management
shareholders' agreements
share purchase agreements and commercial lending
partnership law
and intellectual property and information technology. As one of the most challenging areas of law the manual is essential to students and is also an excellent resource for any Irish legal practitioner.
This is the second edition of this successful manual, the first edition being Commercial Law.
