...COMPANY LAW – Part 1 By Carl T. Abruquah Introduction The company is a form of business organization that involves a greater number of owners than a sole proprietorship or a partnership. It is a form that has arisen to meet the exigencies, complexity and rapidly expanding dimensions of business. It is a convenient form of business organizations in the sense that it enables investors to contribute to the capital of the organization without taking active part in its management. The rules governing companies and its management have developed over time as disputes arose and were resolved. Eventually, most countries have tended to codify these rules and practices in companies legislation. In Ghana, the two main legislation governing companies are the Companies Act, 1963 Act 179, and the Bodies Corporate (Official Liquidations) Act, 1963 Act 180. Nature of a Company In Salomon V Salomon and Co 1897, the court held that a company has a separate legal personality from that of its owners. A company can therefore sue other parties and be sued by other parties in its own name. A company is thus said to have a juristic personality, in other words a personality created by law. Section 24 of the Companies Code codifies this concept by providing that a company has the powers of a natural person of full capacity. Another term for this concept is the veil of incorporation. Another case that illustrates this concept is Macaura V Nothern Assurance Co. - 1925 in this case, the...

...coursework scenario is based on company law. Therefore the first concept to look at is the definition of company law, which is mainly dealt with Companies Act 2006. The definition for this is that a company law is a legislation under which the formation, registration, supervision and closure of a firm is managed and controlled. As company law is understood, the scenario involved in the coursework will be resolved. This will be done by first discussing if Barack Brown can be removed as a director and if so how this can be achieved. Then it will be explained how Ben and Geri can be made directors. As well as that, it will be made clear how the name of the company will be changed. How the shares will be issued will also be discussed in great detail and how Geri cannot be removed as a director without her consent. These proposals will be achieved by great reference to many resources and by quoting case laws relevant and referring to provisions of company legislation. A company is defined as group of people who contribute money to a common stock and who employ this in a business. They also share the profit arising as well as loss.
