    ECFR - European Company and Financial Law Review

    In legislation and in case law, European Union law has become a
    steadily more dominant factor in determining national company laws
    as well as financial markets and banking law of the member states.
    However, national law also continues to play a major role in several
    fields. Such developments are sometimes of high academic interest
    in other European jurisdictions.

    However, the discussion of these European and national
    developments is still to a great extent restricted to the national
    communities of experts and is done in their national language.
    Therefore, there is still a strong publication and language barrier in
    Europe. ECFR intends to change this situation by being one of the
    leading European academic platforms for debate across Europe on
    drafting and application of European and comparative company and
    financial markets law. lt aims at universities, lawmakers on both the
    European and national levels, courts, lawyers, banks and other
    financial service institutions, in house counsel, accountants and
    notaries who draft or work with European company and financial

    The journal focuses on all areas of European and national company
    law and of the financing of companies and business entities. This
    includes the law of capital markets as well as the law of accounting
    and auditing and company law-related issues of insolvency law.
    Banking law is also treated through specific articles as part of
    financial markets law. Finally, ECFR serves as a platform for the
    discussion of theoretical questions such as economic analysis of
    company law. lt consists of articles and case notes on both decisions
    of the European courts as well as of national courts insofar as they
    are of interest from a comparative perspective. This does not, of
    course, exclude contributions from other parts of the world which
    may also be of interest for European readers.

    Based on an initiative by the editors of the Zeitschrift für
    Unternehmens- und Gesellschaftsrecht (ZGR), ECFR soon gained
    the support of many sister journals all of them leading company and
    financial markets law journals in their respective jurisdictions. Thus,
    ECFR as a European platform for academic exchange is currently
    edited by the editors of ZGR in co-operation with
    Ondernemingsrecht, Revista de Derecho de Sociedades, Revue des
    societes, Rivista delle societa, and the Revue pratique des societes -
    Tijdschrift voor rechtspersoon en vennootschap.

    Managing Editors of ECFR are Holger Fleischer, Jesper Lau
    Hansen, Maarten J. Kroeze, Hanno Merkt, Andres Recalde Castells,
    Edmund Schuster, Marco Ventoruzzo and Marieke Wyckaert

    Editors-in-Chief are Pierre-Henri Conac and Christoph Teichmann
