Webinar: Amendments to Commercial Companies Code — Holding Law

On 13 October 2022, one of the biggest amendments to the Commercial Companies Code (CCC) came into force. The new rules introduced, among other things, provisions regulating the holding law, i.e. group of companies that pursue common interest as part of a single strategy.

What are the main principles of the holding law and what issues should a company examine before taking decision on participation in a group of companies? And above all, what is the purpose and benefit for companies that decide to take advantage of the new rules of holding law?
