  • About this book

Private company law reform is among the most important topics for lawmakers and companies. This volume explains in detail the legal reforms taking place in the principal European jurisdictions, the United States and Asia. Bringing together a leading group of company law scholars, the essays examine the factors leading to the rise of the new unincorporated entities in the US and Asia and explains how private company law forms can be suitably adapted to meet a wide range of firms' needs. The contributions also examine the important reforms taking place in private company law across the EU, address how these reforms may lead to a more optimal environment for businesses to operate and analyse the introduction of the European Private Company.
