Duration: 15/2/2013 - 14/1/2016
This research is focused on company groups and parent company liability within Europe. Situations in which the economic reality of company groups is recognised over the legal reality and the justifications used for that are discussed. After an in-depth analysis of group law, an examination is made of the current state of laws on company groups and parent company liability in cases of damages caused by subsidiary operations. Finally, suggestions are made for the future of the company and group law in Europe.
