Excerpt from Company Forms in Scotland: Prepared and Antated Scottish solicitors have desired, it is believed, for some years, the publication of Forms in connection with the formation and management of companies in Scotland under the immediate direction editorially of a writer trained in the atmosphere of, and more in sympathy with, Scottish views and requirements. Legal practitioners in Scotland naturally expect to receive less assistance from similar works arranged by English lawyers. Some of these English publications have been of great assistance; but the tendency of a slavish adherence to English forms under their guidance is apt to be somewhat prejudicial. For the purpose of meeting the desire of Scottish lawyers and accountants and others interested in company matters, I have prepared the present volume of Forms dealing with Memoranda and Articles of Association of Public, Private, and Non-Profit Companies or Associations and with Formation Agreements. It is hoped that the General Notes and other antations with which these Forms are furnished will be of assistance to the general practitioner. Such English and Scottish authorities, as seemed apposite to the matter in hand, have been cited. The volume, prepared and arranged by one with some acquaintance of English law as well as with his own system of jurisprudence, may also be found useful to English solicitors in dealing with company affairs in Scotland.
