This well-established and authoritative work, now in its seventh edition, is the most comprehensive reference on the law concerning minority shareholders. With the increasing focus on corporate governance and the rising influence of shareholder activism, this book is the foremost resource for practitioners needing current, detailed information on the rights and remedies available to minority shareholders. It offers thorough and insightful coverage of section 994 petitions, derivative claims, just and equitable winding-up petitions, and the international aspects of shareholder disputes, as well as shareholders' personal claims against companies and their rights under the Companies Act 2006.

The seventh edition reviews all significant recent case law from the UK, including *Sevilleja v Marex Financial Ltd* on reflective loss, and *Loveridge v Loveridge*, *Re Westshield Ltd*, and *UTB plc v Sheffield Utd* on unfair prejudice. It also considers case law from other jurisdictions with similar shareholder provisions, particularly from Hong Kong, Singapore, and the Caribbean.
