Why should you subscribe to Gore-Browne on EU Company Law
Setting up, running and dissolving a business is never easy wherever the jurisdiction, but for EU Member States it is complicated by the effects of EU Directives on their own law and practice. EU Directives governing the regulation of companies have had profound effects on how businesses operate throughout Europe. In the UK, for example, the European Company (SE), money laundering legislation and developments in cross-border insolvency have all resulted from EU initiatives.
Gore-Browne on EU Company Law explains the impact of EU Directives and Regulations on company law, taxation, accounting and insolvency. Analytical in approach, it examines and monitors the implementation provisions in the UK, looks at forthcoming developments and Directives, analyses key cases from the European Court of Justice and discusses new EU business entities that are now available and are increasingly being used by Member States including the UK.
Gore-Browne on EU Company Law includes a succinct and informative section on the ongoing debate and developments regarding the proposals for legislation regarding single-member companies within the EU, which has been the subject of debate across Member States for nearly a decade.
