Description
Oppression and Related Remedies is the definitive one-stop shop for shareholder litigation. Oppression and Related Remedies avoids case summaries and provides a coherent, principled analysis of complex and conflicting case law. By highlighting conflicting case law and analyzing the factors that lead courts to one line of cases or the other, it provides an essential research tool that allows lawyers, judges, academics and students to access the law and to find, develop and sharpen arguments. This text is more than simply a text on the oppression remedy. It provides detailed analysis of burgeoning related areas such as directors' liability and take-over bid litigation. Includes separate chapters on • Origins of the Oppression Remedy • Standing • What is Oppression? • Common Categories of Oppression • Director's Duties • Take-Over Bids • Compulsory Acquisitions • Remedies • Just and Equitable Liquidation • Dissent and Appraisal Rights • Derivative Actions.
