Workshop on Current Perspectives on EU Company and Financial Law


The European Commission published its Company Law Package on 25 April 2018 and the proposals relating to sustainable finance followed. The ELI Business and Financial Law SIG decided to organise a workshop devoted to this topical issue.

This well-attended event took place on 25 January 2019 in Lille and was divided into two parts, one on the EU Company Law Package of 25 April 2018 and the other on Recent Developments Relating to Corporate Governance and Financial Aspects. Jurists from across Europe, including from Belgium, France, Germany, Italy and the UK, discussed the Proposed Directive Relating to the Use of Digital Tools and processes in company law, the harmonisation of private international law in the company law context, corporate governance and sustainable investment, among many other topics.

ELI is grateful to the organisers, Chairs of the ELI Business and Financial Law SIG, Yuri Biondi, Andra Cotiga-Raccah and Corrado Malberti, for organising this event.
