With the increasing interest of foreign investors, particularly institutional investors, in European companies, there is a growing need for information on the different regimes affecting the legal status of shareholders. Investors need to be aware of the rights and privileges of shareholders in various jurisdictions in order to participate effectively in companies' voting and decision-making processes.

This book provides detailed analysis of the rules and practices in 16 European jurisdictions and the United States, covering issues such as convening the general meeting, depositing and blocking of shares, participation rights, setting of the agenda, voting rights and proxy rules. The authors also aim to make companies aware of practices which may hamper effective shareholder participation and, in comparing the different rules and practices, to identify areas where further harmonisation might be undertaken within the European Community framework.

The papers collected here are the result of a conference organised by Professor Theodor Baums, of the University of Osnabruck and Professor Eddy Wymeersch, of the University of Ghent.
