Interview with Nuala Doyle, Partner at BSP in the Banking & Finance and Capital Markets practice.

Allowing instead shareholders to confirm their participation any time up until a few days before a general meeting would better serve the main purpose of this law which aims to protect the rights of shareholders and promote their engagement in these companies.
