It first discusses the EU and EEA legal framework and case law and thereafter examines the rules applicable at the level of 13 major EU countries (UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands, Poland, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Czech Republic and Hungary). It deals with cross-border mergers and other types of cross-border reorganisations within Europe such as demergers, transfers of branches of activities and transfers of the head office and/or the registered office of companies across borders.
