In legislation and in case law, European law has become a steadily more dominant factor in determining national European company laws. The forthcoming European Company, as well as the Regulation on the Application of International Accounting Standards (IAS Regulation) will accelerate this development even more. The discussion, however, is still mired in individual nations. This is true for the academic field and more so for practitioners. The journal intends to overcome this handicap by sparking a debate across Europe on drafting and application of European company law. It integrates the European company law component previously published as part of the Zeitschrift für Unternehmens- und Gesellschaftsrecht (ZGR), the leading German law review specialized in the field of company and capital market law, and is edited in co-operation with other European company law journals. It aims at universities, law makers on both the European and national levels, courts, lawyers, banks and other financial service institutions, in house counsels, accountants and notaries who draft or work with European company law. The journal focuses on all areas of European company law and 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. Finally it serves as a platform for the discussion of theoretical questions such as the economic analysis of company law. It consists of articles and case notes on both decisions of the European courts as well as of national courts insofar as they have implications on European company law.
