Abstract [en]

This volume of Scandinavian Studies in Law (Sc.St.L.) addresses legal issues related to company law. The articles cover a number of different areas, especially those concerning limited liability companies. In addition, several problems relating to the interpretation of the European company law directives are analysed. Thus, both national and European perspectives are included. The Scandinavian countries have a long tradition of cooperation in the area of company law. Denmark, Finland and Sweden are members of the EU. Norway and Iceland are linked to the Union via the European Economic Area Agreement. As a consequence, all the Scandinavian countries have harmonized their legislation in accordance with the company law directives, which has brought important consequences for all these countries. Reflecting a broad spectrum of issues currently attracting interest in the Scandinavian countries, as well as in many other European countries which are in the process of adjusting their legislation to the EU standards, this volume of Sc.St.L. provides an important contribution to the international discussion.
