Gore-Browne on EU Company Law


'Gore-Browne does not stop at just reciting the law as it currently stands, but it goes further in that it supplies a truly interesting critique of the current state of the law with good referencing to other commentary. I strongly recommend it to all professionals who practice in company law and whose work has a cross-border element to it.'

​Stefan Ramel LLB, LLM (Cantab), Barrister, Guildhall Chambers, Bristol

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.

 In one looseleaf volume it contains the fully amended text of all the European Directives together with invaluable commentary on the implementation and purpose of each Directive.

'Gore-Browne on EU Company law is a very well written looseleaf work which covers a substantial amount of material on international company law. It very helpfully reproduces at the end of each chapter some of the key primary materials which are the subject of analysis in the relevant chapter. This is a looseleaf which does not stop at just reciting the law as it currently stands, but it goes further in that it supplies a truly interesting critique of the current state of the law with good referencing to other commentary. Being a looseleaf, it is completely up to date with the latest domestic and international case law on company law. However, it also includes some very useful commentary on ongoing changes to existing legislation. I strongly recommend it to all professionals who practice in company law and whose work has a cross-border element to it.'
