Abstract

The book rests upon a fundamental criticism of what the authors hold as the core tenet of both UK and American corporate law, namely the ‘freedom of con- tract theory’, according to which company law is a mechanism aimed at facilitating contractual relations among shareholders.2 By contrast, Continental European cor- porate law is described as a ‘regulatory policy model’, for it tries to protect a broader range of stakeholders, in particular minority shareholders and creditors, through mandatory rules.
