On 26 January 2015, the European Commission requested the Informal Company Law Expert Group (ICLEG) to consider the issue of digitalisation of company law and two members, Vanessa Knapp and Jesper Lau Hansen, were charged with producing a response on behalf of the Group.
The report begins with some general observations on whether there is a need for digitalisation in the company law area, what the current issues are, the current situation and initiatives that have already been taken, what might be achieved by EU intervention in these issues and some areas outside company law which are relevant to the issue. It then presents various recommendations relating to digitalisation.
