Public and private authorities, creditors as well as other parties, who interact with the company, must as a starting point respect the rules set by the founders of the company. As not all company forms are regulated in Denmark, the freedom of contract is wider for companies here than in many other countries. It is possible to freely choose between various forms of companies and to modify or combine elements of existing company forms. This book offers an introduction to Danish Companies Act and how company law works in Denmark e.g. concerning freedom of choice for companies, capital structure, shareholder/ stakeholder value in Denmark etc.
