Kluwer New Title: European Corporate Law, Third Edition

Here’s their press release

By Adriaan F. M. Dorresteijn, Christoph Teichmann, Tiago Monteiro, Erik Werlauff, Nadia Pocher

The fully updated new edition of this essential title provides you with an overview of EU legislation and related case law regarding company law, capital markets, cross-border acquisitions and the rights and role of employees. Furthermore, it presents the legal forms of business enterprises within the EU and explains important features of the national company laws of eight Member States.

The authors, all leading experts in European corporate law, describe current and emerging trends in such areas of corporate law practice as the following:

  • rules on cross-border mergers;
  • employee involvement in business activities;
  • the initiatives by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the EU to curb tax avoidance;
  • Member States’ implementation of EU legislation;
  • a company’s freedom to incorporate in a jurisdiction not its own;
  • competition among the legal forms of different Member States; and
  • safeguarding of employee involvement in cross-border transactions.

It enables practitioners and academics to acquire a general understanding of corporate law in the EU. It may also be helpful to those in legal practice who need to know the EU background of their national corporate law or who are specifically interested in business organizations under EU law.

It is also a springboard for further research on topics dealt with or mentioned briefly in the book such as liability of directors, corporate governance, cross-border acquisitions, digitalisation of company law, cross-border insolvency and pre-insolvency restructuring.
