The aim of this book is to provide an analysis of the European Union’s evolving legal framework in the area of company law. Company law has been at the centre of interest in EC law since the early stages of market integration. The internal market required among other things the harmonization of the rules relating to company law, as well as to accounting and auditing. The European Commission stresses that its harmonization programme aims at reducing red tape by assisting corporations in operating throughout the EU on the basis of a single set of rules and a unified management and reporting system, which endeavour to increase transparency and confidence in corporate governance and to enhance the protection of investors, employees and the public. The important role of case law in this process of market integration should also not been neglected.
