Gore-Browne on EU Company Law offers invaluable commentary on the implementation and purpose of European Directives. It includes essential coverage on: Joint Ventures and how they are increasingly being used as the corporate vehicle of choice by two or more Member States; Expanded coverage of European Tax Law, including detailed analysis of the key European Court rulings on Member States' direct taxes; Comprehensive analysis of the adoption of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency and its implications for the EU; Detailed examination of the impact of the EC Regulation on Insolvency Proceedings 2000 on corporate rescue across the UK and other Member States; Corporate social responsibility;Companies and the conflicts of law.
