We have the pleasure of inviting you to the book launch for:
"Towards a Sustainable European Company Law. A Normative Analysis of the Objectives of EU Law, with the Takeover Directive as a Test Case"
As Professor Jaap Winter states in his foreword to this exciting new contribution, it "vigorously and passionately" forces us to rethink fundamental issues in EU treaty law and in our regulation of companies. Or as put by Professor Takis Tridimas in his foreword: "This is a fresh, stimulating and valuable discussion ... which will make an important contribution to European corporate law discourse". You are welcome to download and read the first chapter here http://ssrn.com/abstract=1356542
