Part of the Ius Comparatum - Global Studies in Comparative Law book series (GSCL, volume 43)


This General Report provides a comparative law analysis of the phenomenon of groups of companies, through an overview and summary of the information contained in the more than twenty National Reports presented to the International Congress on Comparative Law held in Fukuoka, Japan, in 2018, which make up this book. The General Report begins by surveying the manner in which the different legislations define and describe groups of companies, then goes on to study the varied approaches and solutions found in and offered by the legal systems analysed in the book, mainly for the protection of minority shareholders and that of creditors and other third parties, also mentioning some regulations pertaining to different areas of the law (such as labour, tax and competition law). As such, it provides an overall, but altogether detailed view of the phenomenon in legislations from various parts of the world, organized around the most relevant topics surrounding groups of companies.
