European Corporate Law, in its fourth edition is the best-known practical overview of the law regarding companies, business organizations, and capital markets in Europe at both the European Union (EU) and Member State levels. European corporate law consists of legal norms relating to certain types of business organizations. The EU rules on accounting, strongly influenced by international accounting standards, have been modernized to contain non-financial reporting obligations with a view to sustainability and other social responsibility concerns of undertakings. The book incorporates an analysis of recent developments, including the impact of global initiatives on different aspects of the corporate environment.
What’s in this book:
The authors, leading experts in European corporate law, highlight current and emerging trends in these areas of corporate law, including:
the freedom of establishment of companies within the EU
the European harmonization process and Member States’ implementation of EU legislation
employee involvement in business organizations
the division of power between the different corporate bodies
the functioning and regulation of company groups, and
cross-border business combinations, takeovers and restructuring tools
The authors describe common denominators and differences in the approach of national corporate laws. The laws of France, Germany and the Netherlands, in particular, are discussed and contrasted, and this discussion also includes the United Kingdom, although no longer an EU Member State.
How this will help you:
Introducing the reader to the EU harmonization programme and describing how this has influenced corporate law in the various EU Member States, this fourth edition will continue to be of great value to practitioners and academics who wish to acquire a better understanding of European corporate law, in its supranational dimension as well as in the similarities and differences among the various national legal systems. It can also be used as a handbook for comparative corporate law courses.
