We would like to invite you to our webinar on the recent evolution of French case law on the criminal liability of an absorbing company for facts committed before the merger by the absorbed company.
Indeed, on 25 November 2020, the French Supreme Court (Cour de cassation) ruled that in the event of a merger, the absorbing company may now, under certain conditions, be criminally liable for facts committed by the absorbed company prior to the occurrence of the merger.

The webinar will be led by:
