Corporate Law Update (19 August - 1 September)
- 01 September 2017
The Macfarlanes Corporate Law Update is a short update on key developments. It is a signpost towards matters that may be of interest, with links to more detailed information.
This week we look at a case where an insurer was unable to avoid cover because it had failed to inform its policyholder that certain documents still needed to be provided as a pre-condition to cover, as well as a handful of smaller updates.
Also, on 29 August 2017, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy published the formal response to its November 2016 green paper on proposed reforms to corporate governance, including on executive pay, employee board representation and governance of private companies. We will be reporting on this in due course.
