Regulatory Competition in European Corporate and Capital Market Law – An Empirical Analysis

Lars Hornuf

This book deals with regulatory competition in corporate and capital market law in Europe, i.e. the endeavor of national and supranational legislators to develop more attractive corporate legal forms and investment frameworks. It focuses on some recent national corporate law reforms, the newly introduced European legal form Societas Europaea and the choice of law in corporate debt securities. It combines legal reasoning and advanced econometric techniques to investigate the virtues of regulatory competition in Europe. As it turns out, the merits of regulatory competition in corporate and capital market law are not straightforward but have to be evaluated on a case by case basis.

‘In assessing the empirics of regulatory competition in Europe, the book provides interesting insight on regulatory competition issues at different points in time. The book’s findings will be of interest both to legal scholarship, and law and economics scholarship.’ Pierre Schammo in European Law Review 723 (2013)

‘[…]Altogether, Hornuf’s book provides an interesting and enriching overview of different aspects of regulatory competition in European corporate and capital market law. It is well written and comprehensible, not only to economists but also to lawyers. […]’ Alexander Hellgardt in Springer Journal 577 (2016)
