Perpetual succession, Business Law and Ethics

Perpetual Succession:

                     According to the Concise Oxford Dictionary, "perpetual" means, inter alia, "applicable, valid, for ever or for indefinite time" while "succession" means "a following in order". When used in relation to registered companies the phrase "perpetual succession" denotes a process whereby a company's membership changes in a definite order prescribed by the company's articles and goes on for an indefinite period of time until the company's liquidation. The "perpetual succession" occurs because a company and its members are separate persons and so the company's legal life is not terminated by a member's death.
