  • Information law for company participants – the search for a balance of interests

    At the present time, in various legal relationships there exists the acute problem of observing a balance of interests concerning the parties involved in these legal relationships, their legal rights, and their mutual economic needs. Judicial practice, when considering disputes between these kinds of parties, takes into consideration not only the formal requirements of legislation, but also the real economic and legal goals and interests of the participants.
