Corporate (company) law in Slovakia


Corporate law belongs to the most important fields of interest in our Law firm. Company law is also known as company law or corporations law.

Corporate law is the study of how shareholders, directors, employees, creditors, and other stakeholders such as consumers, the community and the environment interact with one another. Corporate law is a part of a broader companies law (or law of business associations).

Corporate law is a law of copmanies too. Our Law firm is involved in setting up companies limited by shares and advising on buying and selling businesses.

The defining feature of a corporation is its legal independence from the people who create it. If a corporation fails, its shareholders will lose their money, and employees will lose their jobs, though disproportionately affecting its workers as opposed to its upper executives. Shareholders, however owning a part piece of the company, are not liable for debts that remain owing to the corporation's creditors. This is called limited liability.
