Written Resolutions in UK Companies Act 2006 and Their Possible Relevance beyond UK Borders

Paolo Butturini

The very detailed regulation about written resolutions of private companies enacted by the CA 2006 is interesting not only to British companies and practitioners but also to those of other countries. After analysing the regulation, we will ask, in particular, if and how these rules can help Italian companies and their advisers in setting adequate rules about written resolutions in a limited liability company’s articles. In more general terms, we will also discuss whether the UK regulation can be considered as a template for other legislators and whether the principles underlying it can be helpful in construing foreign regulations of written resolutions.
