The Second Edition of "Kirk on Guernsey Company Law" is anticipated to be available in November this year from Key Haven Publications Limited.
The book was first published in 2009 and the new edition incorporates the many changes to the Companies (Guernsey) Law, 2008 since it came into force, as well as new relevant case law.
Kirk on Guernsey Company Law is a comprehensive review, focussing on the types of company available in Guernsey (including protected cell companies and incorporated cell companies), the dividend and distributions regime, amalgamations, reconstructions and takeovers, the raising of capital and borrowing, the insolvency regime and the application of the "solvency test" in corporate transactions.
Ian is a consultant at Collas Crill, an English solicitor and Guernsey Advocate with more than 30 years experience of company and commercial law. He is the former head of commercial at Collas Crill, former chair of the Guernsey branch of the Institute of Directors, and was, for a number of years, the Guernsey Bar examiner in company and financial services law.
The new edition will be an invaluable guide to professional advisers (including lawyers and accountants), insolvency practitioners, directors, company secretaries and company administrators.
