This book explores the problems in the application of agency law in commercial practice. Providing rcal context for the issues it addresses, the book analyses abstract agency law concepts and 'tests' them in specific commercial situations. The editors arc three of the leading academics in this arca, and the book contains 12 substantive chapters written hy an international team of agency experts. It otfers wide-ranging analysis that includes considération of English, Scottish, Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand law, frequently adopting a comparative approach to discuss related jurisdictions. Topics discussed include timely and contentious matters such as agency and principal dealing in sccuritics transactions and the role of the director in company law. Chapters arc grouped thcmatically, covering agency in general contract law, company law, financial transactions and services, procedural contexts, and international perspectives.

The book's comparative approach provides innovative perspectives and insights, as well as practical guidance on solving commercial problems. This book is a fresh and rich resource for academics and practitioners alike, and an important contribution to both agency theory and commercial practice.
