New Rules for Corporate Groups in Europe (Fordham’s Corporate Law Center, March 27, 2014). This post comes from Tobias Tröger, LLM’04.
Tobias is currently a Professor of Private Law, Trade and Business Law, Jurisprudence at Goethe-University Frankfurt, Institute of Private-and Business Law.
On Thursday, March 27, Tobias Tröger (LL.M. 04) will give a talk at Fordham’s Corporate Law Center on “New Rules for Corporate Groups in Europe” as part of the “Comparative Corporate Governance Distinguished Lecture Series”.
The talk will address two aspects of the European Commission’s Action Plan and its imminent implementation that focus on specific issues of corporate groups. The proposed rules on related party transactions will be evaluated with a particular view to institutional investors’ corporate governance preferences. Furthermore, the Commission’s intention to allow a parent company to push through measures serving the “group interest” vis-à-vis subsidiaries will be evaluated with regard to investor protection.
