Our guide on the Mobility Directive (EU) 2019/2121 provides high-level information on the new legal framework for cross-border conversions, mergers and divisions of limited liability companies within the EEA. Several EU Member States have already implemented the Mobility Directive, with Belgium, France, Germany, Italy and Sweden being among the first, while other Member States are expected to implement it soon.
Spain and the Netherlands have now adopted implementation laws as well. While the new Spanish law is already applicable, the new Dutch law will come into force at 1 September 2023.
To get an overview of the status of implementation in selected EU Member States, please see our Implementation Tracker.
Topics covered include the new cash-out right, key milestones of the complex procedure and important employee participation considerations.
It is intended merely to highlight issues and not to be comprehensive, nor to provide legal advice, but we trust it proves useful. We have included contact details of some of our experts who have contributed to this guide, but you should also feel free to get in touch with your own Linklaters contacts about any of the issues raised.
Further jurisdictions will be added as legislation is implemented.
