The 2023 edition includes recent cases covering a number of areas of company law. Most notable are the cases dealing with members’ remedies, discussed in Chapter 8. There is also a new Companies (Amendment) Bill 2022 which was gazetted on 25 November 2022 and now before the Legislative Council. The bill proposes some minor amendments to the CO to confirm that companies may hold virtual or hybrid general meetings, subject to express restrictions in the articles.

The text has been thoroughly updated with discussion of new cases, including:

  • the statutory derivative action (Lam Kin Chung v Soka Gakkai International of Hong Kong Ltd [2022] 4 HKC 202, [2022] HKCA 480);
