Companies Act 2014

Crowe Horwath and Thomson Reuters celebrated the publication of The Companies Act 2014: An Annotation in association with Roundhall Press at a book launch last November in the Merrion Hotel.

As key note speaker, The Hon. Mr. Justice David Keane engaged a full room with his insights on the publication. The author, Brian Conroy, regaled the audience with his experience of writing the annotation and thanked the numerous people that helped him along the way.

Commenting on the publication Naoise Cosgrove, Managing Partner Crowe Horwath, said “We are extremely pleased that Brian Conroy B.L. accepted the challenge to write this book. At the time of commissioning the book none of us appreciated the scale of the task that lay ahead. We wish to express our sincere gratitude to Brian and the other contributors Mark Rodgers BL), Aideen Keane BL, and Stephen Walsh BL, L for their tireless work over many years in researching the legislation and tracking it through its many stages until its final enactment.” Cosgrove also said “We also wish to express our gratitude to the Editorial Panel comprising of Crowe Horwath partners George Kennington and Roseanna O’Hanlon along with Brian Murray SC, Barry O’Neill, Albert Farrell and Ruairí Cosgrove”.

For the last 25 years Crowe Horwath have published the Combined Companies Act as an easy to use company law compilation and reference guide. The previous Combined Companies Act grew in size each year as new legislation was enacted to eventually include 32 different statutes. This is all now codified into one single Act and the new publication will assist in tracking references from previous legislation though to the new legislation and provide an easy to use reference publication with helpful interpretations and commentary on what is amended and what is new, some of which are radical reforms to existing law.

At Crowe Horwath, our team of company secretarial professionals help companies and directors fulfil their statutory obligations effectively and efficiently. We work with companies at all stages of their development, whether it is incorporation, structural changes, or dissolution. We advise on domestic and off-shore structures, and through our international network can provide clients with company secretarial services on a world-wide basis.
