Company Law and Practice in Nigeria

by Clement C. Chigbo

Company Law and Practice in Nigeria is a worthy roadmap in navigating the entire gamut of Nigerian Corporate law. It begins with a concise history of company law in Nigeria, examines the creation of companies, founding documents and contracts, corporate finance, officers, principles, corporate governance, filings, restructuring and taxation. It also captures and feeds readers on provisions of recent corporate legislations in Nigeria, namely the Companies and Allied Matters Act 2020.

Unlike its contemporaries, Company Law and Practice in Nigeria extensively expatiates on the application of Company Law in practice, through a repository of recent judicial decisions. In addition, Business Names and Incorporated Trustees are not left out, as the book conveys statutory stipulations and regulatory prescriptions concerning their creation and operation in Nigeria.

The authors who are knowledgeable in the sphere of corporate law and practice have presented a topical book and it is highly recommended for companies, corporate lawyers, in-house counsel, attorneys, corporate academics, law students and persons seeking clarification on any aspects of Nigerian Corporate Law and Practice.
