This chapter focuses on the company constitution. Every company is required to have articles of association. Model forms of articles are provided for public and private companies limited by shares, and any company may adopt all or any of the provisions of the relevant model articles for that type of company. The remainder of the chapter covers the content of the articles, amending the articles, interpreting the articles, enforcing the articles, and shareholders' agreements.
