  • A book on this subject has been long awaited by company lawyers and private international lawyers alike
  • Comparative coverage of six key European jurisdictions (England, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands & Switzerland)
  • Special focus upon location of a company's 'seat' for legal purposes
  • Relevant EC law fully analysed including freedom of establishment for legal persons
  • Part of the successful Oxford Monographs in Private International Law series
This book provides a much-needed analysis of this very important subject for company lawyers, including discussion of the principle of freedom of establishment, and focusing upon the key issue of determining where a corporation has its "seat" for legal purposes. A survey is given of current EC law and of private international law developments in three 'incorporation' countries (Netherlands, England and Switzerland) and three 'real seat' countries (Germany, France and Italy). Following on from entry into force of the Treaty of Amsterdam, an integrated approach of EC law and private international law is advocated in order to developinstruments to facilitate cross-border company migration. Special attention is given to the 1998 EC Draft Proposal for a Fourteenth Company Law Directive on Cross-border Company Transfers.
Readership: Practitioners and academics specializing in company law, EC law and private international law; the judiciary and reference libraries.
