Commercial Law and Economic Law section

Recodification of company law - sources of inspiration and expected solutions to the challenges of the third millennium

The topic of the section's discussion will be the ongoing recodification of company law in the Slovak Republic. The focus of the discussion will be on the inspirations on which the proposed legislation is based. Experience from more than five years of application of the new regulation of private law relations in the Czech Republic will undoubtedly be among the most discussed. Inspirations based on the European Company Law Model (EMCA) and countries that have significantly changed their corporate law (the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Poland and others) will also be the subject of debate. These sources of inspiration for the new regulation must necessarily confront the challenges for corporate law, such as groups of companies, intra-group responsibility, sustainable development vs. corporate governance, resp. company financing.
