Professor Andrew Muscat, who lectures in Company and Insolvency Law at the University of Malta and is a partner at Mamo TCV Advocates has published updated and revised Principles Of Maltese Company Law in three volumes.
The books aim to demystify company law for today’s practitioners and students, offering an in-depth account of the fundamental principles of the subject. The book blends theory with practice and is the end product of extensive academic research conducted in this field of law combined with the author’s years of experience as a corporate lawyer.
The work focuses on the main principles of Maltese company law. Where appropriate, however, an effort has been made to discuss Maltese company law in the context both of English company law (which has exerted considerable influence on Maltese company law for practically five decades) and of European Community law (which is today a key source that will inevitably determine much of the future evolution of Maltese company law).
The analysis, developed in a readable and stimulating fashion, shows that company law cannot be compartmentalized into clear-cut topics that can be studied in isolation.
In foreword to the first edition, Professor Ian Refalo, refers to the book as ‘a work of outstanding quality and one which significantly enriches the scholarly literature on Maltese law’. In this new updated edition, Dr David Fabri, Head of the Department of Commercial Law at the University of Malta, in his foreword states that, “We desperately needed a proper competently authored textbook for the benefit of law students and legal practitioners, academics, as well of members of other professions such as accountants and auditors, company secretaries, compliance officers and, of course, directors. A copy should therefore find itself in all their libraries.”
