Show synopsis 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 and this manual is designed to provide apprentice solicitors with a clear understanding of key areas of this subject. The text deals with theory and practice in business law and areas likely to be encountered throughout the career of the solicitor. Written by acknowledged experts in the field, each chapter gives a clear overview of its subject, focusing on the practical issues that lawyers will face on an everyday basis. The areas covered include: secretarial management; shareholders' agreements; share purchase agreements and commercial lending; partnership law; and intellectual property and information technology. The manual offers an overview of company and partnership structures and also deals with issues most likely to arise in commercial business firms. The manual is essential to students studying business law on the Law Society of Ireland's Professional Practice Course, but is also an excellent resource for any Irish legal practitioner.
