Authored by Paul Martel, one of Canada’s leading corporate law experts, Business Corporations in Canada – Legal and Practical Aspects offers a comprehensive yet pragmatic analysis of the legal principles involved in all aspects of corporate law, as well as the judicial interpretation and application of these principles.

Adapted from Martel’s seminal work, La compagnie au Quebec: Les aspects juridiques, and expanded to cover the common law, this groundbreaking new publication offers a gold mine of valuable corporate case law emanating from Quebec courts, hitherto poorly publicized outside of that province.

With its thorough references to Ontario’s corporate statutes, including the Business Corporations Act, the Business Names Act, the Corporations Information Act, and the Extra-Provincial Corporations Act, this unique publication not only imparts an excellent understanding of Quebec corporate law, but it also provides in-depth information on business corporations in other Canadian jurisdictions, in addition to a comparative view of U.S. principles.
