Corporate—new starter guide

This Practice Note provides an introduction to corporate and company law (Corporate). It is aimed at trainee solicitors and those who are new to Corporate as a practice area. It focuses on the basic principles that apply and includes links to Lexis®PSL Corporate and other LexisNexis® sources and materials which provide more comprehensive information on the topics covered.

Those who are new to Corporate are also likely to find the Overviews in each of the subtopics in the Corporate practice area useful. These Overviews summarise the law relating to a particular issue or aspect of Corporate transactions, providing links to relevant content within the subtopic to help navigate the area concerned. For examples, see: Allotment, issue and pre-emption—overview and Powers, duties and liabilities of directors—overview.
