Celebrated for their conceptual clarity, titles in the Clarendon Law Series offer concise, accessible overviews of major fields of law and legal thought. Some UK-incorporated companies have always operated across borders (i.e. in other countries) and sometimes their business operations have been located almost wholly outside the UK. The same is true for companies incorporated in foreign countries. With the dismantling of trade barriers since the Second World War, the incidence of such activity has increased. A number of company law issues arise in this context, which are explored in this chapter. In particular, the appropriate role for company law made by the European Union, rather than by the member states, becomes an important issue here. Topics discussed include harmonization of company law by the EU; the conditions necessary for regulatory arbitrage; and the proper role for Community legislation.
