This volume, Company Law in Romania, is a consolidated and updated version of previous editions, published since 2006, "Company Law" and "Companies in the European Union".
The paper is completed with company agreements. Clauses, pacts, agreements between the associations of commercial companies, 2nd Edition, University Publishing House, Bucharest, 2012 (of which we took excerpts in this volume) and with the Freedom to establish companies in the European Union. Collection of legislation and jurisprudence, 2nd edition, University Publishing House, 2014.
This paper does not analyze aspects of European company law. Paradoxically, although there have been important changes, both qualitatively and quantitatively, the Companies Law has not been republished. It is a disadvantage when working with its provisions. In addition, since the last republishing of the law, in 2004, there have been over 20 changes.
Thanks in this way to C.H. Beck and the Legal Universe for access to the bibliography. I also thank Wolters Kluwer for accessing the program sintact.ro. In this manual are taken several articles from the 2000s, published in Private Business Law or in magazines published by Tribuna Economica.
We have kept the references to the database of the Ministry of Justice, Superlex, although it is no longer accessible. Today, apart from the mentioned databases and sintact.ro, rolii.ro has a very important role (with some shortcomings, such as the deficient anonymization process, the impossibility to find out if some decisions are final).
The changes between the appearance, at the beginning of 2017, of the 4th edition and the present edition may not be many, but important, especially for students, who need correct information. The first imperative is the need for an adequate position in relation to the legislative text, followed by the interpretation or even the exhaustive treatment. From this perspective, the current text of the volume is an update.
