Corporate law is one of the most complex branches of commercial law, which studies issues relating to corporate life and the relationship between the company, its shareholders, and the administrative bodies.
The entrepreneur can be defined as an individual who creates and/or invests in one or more businesses, bearing most of the risks and enjoying most of the rewards. The art. 2247 of the Italian Civil Code defines the Company Agreement as the Agreement through which “two or more people confer goods or services for the joint exercise of an economic activity, with the purpose of dividing the profits“. The concept of company, however, has evolved and changed in last years, and thus today there are also single-member companies and other types of entities that carry out business activities in associated form.
