Concise Principles of Company Law in Malaysia, 2nd Edition, is a clear, logical and current examination of Malaysian company law. Thoroughly updated to reflect all legislative changes since the last edition, the text includes legislative provisions, recent cases, law reform initiatives and other materials to provide students, lecturers and practitioners a solid foundation for understanding the principles of company law. Case material is integrated with the text to provide a clear explanation of the principles under discussion in this ever-changing area of law.

The main legislative changes incorporated in this edition stem from the Companies (Amendment) Act 2007and Capital Markets and Services Act 2007. There is increased coverage of corporate governance and Chapter 13 has been expanded to include important changes in the area of directors' duties. The introduction of the statutory derivative action has also been discussed extensively in Chapter 17.

New cases have also been incorporated into the various chapters of this book to help its users understand how the law has been applied to factual situations. The book also takes into account the various guidelines that have been issued by the Companies Commission of Malaysia to assist persons in registering companies with the Commission. Written with a particular focus on Malaysia, the book will nevertheless be useful to interested parties from other jurisdictions.
