UK: England and Wales: a member's right to inspect the register of members

The Court of Appeal gave judgment yesterday in Houldsworth Village Management Company Ltd v Barton [2020] EWCA Civ 980, a case concerning the right given to each member of a company (and any other person) under section 116 of the Companies Act 2006 to inspect the company's register of members and request a copy.  The decision is an important one, not least because of the strong endorsement it provides for the role performed by section 116 in helping shareholders to hold directors accountable. A summary has been published by the ICLR: see [2020] WLR(D) 445.
