The Company Law Review
Trade secretary Patricia Hewitt has unveiled the long-awaited findings of the Company Law Review.
The review’s final report marks the end of a three-year project aimed at devising a modern framework of company law to replace the current system, much of which was developed in the days of Queen Victoria.
Put together by a steering group consisting of business, legal and government experts, it makes a number of recommendations to simplify business law with the aim of reducing red tape for companies large and small.
