Economic Law and Competition Law

The research activities of the Institute in this research area concentrate on issues of company and corporate law, financial and capital markets law, and competition law. Important themes are legal rules for closed corporations, the future of corporate governance, the law governing non-profit organisations and foundations, the cross-dimensional issue of whistleblowing and the law governing cartels. While the focus is often on the European dimension, attention is also paid to non-European legal systems included for the purposes of comparison.
