WP 2008-03

This paper gives an overview of the Belgian law, essentially case law on the subject of company groups. Apart from aspects of definitions and scope, it divides the subject in internal group law, and external group law. The former deals with the relations between the actors within a group, and their rights andduties in a group relationship. The latter focuses on the liability of group firms for acts, or contracts that created liabilities for other group entities.
