European Company Law

Organization, Finance and Capital Markets (2nd edition)

By Stefan Grundmann

Now available in paperback! Over the last decade, European company law has been re-written completely. Virtually no EU measure remained unchanged and most of them have undergone fundamental reform. This is astonishing since almost half of these measures only came into existence after the turn of the millennium. In the last five years, 'modern' European company law has been characterized by a strong foundation of accounting law, i.e. the basic information scheme in international models (IFRS); the practicability and reality of cross-border mobility in its different types; the considerable success of European company types, namely in the form of the European Company which has been adopted by many blue chip companies; and, finally, by governance, the latter also experiencing a remarkable renaissance of shareholders' rights, namely voting right schemes. In times of crisis, this is the equipment with which challenges have to be met. This book discusses the EC/EU law, including all instruments through which it is transposed into the national law systems. However, where no EC/EU law exists, a comparative law discussion and policy aspects, namely law and economics, fill the gaps. The whole organism of (limited liability) company law is thus covered. In addition to organization, accounting, finance, and the closely related capital market law European Company Law covers the cornerstones of EC/EU corporate tax and insolvency law. This broad scientific perspective of the 'European' in company law remains unique. It will be of great value to top-level practice and highly-ranked policy discussions.
