Professor Chris Nicholls is a distinctive voice in the Canadian corporate legal academy. A prolific scholar of corporate and securities law developments, he is one of a few Canadian corporate legal academics to have a wealth of legal practice experience to draw upon, and to understand from detailed first-hand experience of both realms how they differ in the questions that are asked and the way answers are formulated. These diverse experiences make him eminently qualified to prepare a text on Canadian corporate law for use not only by law students, but also legal practitioners wishing to understand the latest developments in doctrine and scholarly analysis. A further strength of this book is that the doctrinal analysis in it is deeply embedded in both legal and business history, making it of interest to well-established scholars in the field as well.
