This book is intended to serve as a guide to businessmen and their advisers, either from outside the Common Market or from within, who seek basic information on questions in three main fields: company law and related legal matters, taxation, and labour law. For those who wish to establish an enter prise or form a holding or financing company in one of the Member States of the Common Market (including Greece, of course) or Switzerland this guide offers a unique opportunity to compare conditions in the various countries in the three fields. This is facilitated by the strict adherence to one format for each national chapter. Those who are already present in one or more of the eleven countries will find a global answer to a number of practical questions that may arise. For detailed answers the local lawyer or other consultant remains indispensable. The format is based on two different approaches the foreign investor may take: either he 'goes it alone', by way of establishing a branch, setting up a subsidiary or taking over an existing company, or he joins forces with another investor from within the host country or from outside. In the latter event there are a number of legal forms (jointly owned company, partnership, etc. ) which may be used.

This is an ambitious, original, fascinating and eminently readable study of UK company law in its European and international context. As well as doctrinal company law (whether purely domestic or European), it touches on theory and other laws, especially insolvency, fiscal and private international law affecting the corporate form. It provides insights that will be of interest and use to academic company lawyers across the world and should be on the reading list for any postgraduate course on company law. John Birds, University of Manchester, UK In this book, David Milman explains the significant impact and effect of global trends on the regulation and implementation of UK corporate law, exposing both the historical and future advancement of the global convergence (and divergence) of corporate principles in jurisdictions across the world. The treatment of the subject area is unique, informative and a compelling read. The exposition of the subject matter is thought provoking. The book is comprehensively crafted, exhibiting the author s enviable ability to import detailed and complex issues into a most readable text. Stephen Griffin, University of Wolverhampton, UK In this timely book, David Milman considers how UK corporate law has been affected by the forces of globalisation, arguing that this is not a new development, but rather is part of an historical continuum. He examines corporate law regulatory strategy in general, treatment of foreign shareholders and multinational groups, aspects of private international law and issues connected with cross border insolvency. The substantive chapters cover a full range of issues, from the harmonisation of corporate law, and the common denominators in corporate law principles, to the regulation of overseas companies and foreign stakeholders and transnational cooperation. The book concludes with a consideration of the wider issue of convergence in corporate law and examines whether total convergence is a realistic possibility. National Corporate Law in a Globalised Market is set against the backdrop of the progressive implementation of the Companies Act 2006 and the turmoil of the current world financial crisis. With a scholarly review of current theoretical and policy issues in corporate law this book will be an invaluable resource tool for academics and advanced students as well as practitioners.

The second edition of Critical Company Law provides a framework in which to understand how the company functions in society and a thorough grounding in modern legal doctrine. It shows how modern company law is shaped by a multi-layered history of politics, ideology, economics and power. Through the lens of political economic theory the book shows how the company becomes the mechanism through which the state makes political choices about distributing societies’ wealth and through which it responds to economic crises. The current law reflects an economy marked by a disjuncture between the low profits of the productive economy and the high profits of the finance economy. Critical Company Law examines areas of company law to show how they reflect a fragile economy inexorably drawn to social and economic inequality and short-termism. These include: • The Doctrine of Separate Corporate Personality • Groups of Companies and Tort Liabilities • Company Formation and the Constitution • Directors’ Duties and Authority • Corporate Capacity • Shares and Shareholders • Raising and Maintaining Capital • Minority Protection In this uniquely hybrid book the legal topics are treated with detail and clarity, providing an engaging introduction to the key topics required for a student of company law.

The history of incorporations legislation and its administration is intimately tied to changes in social beliefs in respect to the role and purpose of the corporation. By studying the evolution of the corporate form in Britain and a number of its colonial possessions, the book illuminates debates on key concepts including the meanings of laissez faire, freedom of commerce, the notion of corporate responsibility and the role of the state in the regulation of business. In doing so, A Social History of Company Law advances our understanding of the shape, effectiveness and deficiencies of modern regulatory regimes, and will be of much interest to a wide circle of scholars.
