Abstract

This Article discusses the transplantation and harmonisation of company law legislation in the British Empire in the early 20th century and in Palestine in particular. It describes the displacement of Ottoman law and its replacement by British company law in Palestine, particularly through the Palestine Companies Ordinance 1929.

The Article suggests that transplantation of British company legislation into Palestine was neither straightforward nor all encompassing.

The Article discusses some specific areas of transplantation difficulty in the case of mandatory Palestine viz private companies, foreign companies, branch registers and limits on land acquisition

Keywords: Corporations, partnerships, transplants, colonial law
