Kristof Maresceau, Senior Associate in the Corporate - M&A practice, has authored the book "De Vennootschap & Haar nieuw ontwerp-wetboek", published by Larcier. The publication provides a first detailed look at the new code for companies and associations.
Kristof's book introduces the proposed corporate legal landscape for regular commercial companies. After the companies code's objectives and guidelines are outlined, the most important proposed changes to company law are discussed. These proposed changes include the abolition of various (legal) types of companies, the new limited company with no share capital (BV), governance, issue of shares and other securities, cross-border conversion, dissolution and liquidation, as well as the entry into force and transitional regime.
