This included a significant number of representations and extensive engagement with the Company Law Review Group, a statutory advisory body charged with advising the Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment on all matters pertaining to company law. Membership of the CLRG is broad and representative of key stakeholders in company law including: the Irish Congress of Trade Unions, the Irish SME Association, the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement, the Revenue Commissioners, the Attorney General’s Office, the Law Society, the Irish Business and Employers’ Confederation, insolvency practitioners, legal practitioners and academics.
