  • Special considerations regarding indirect expropriation in international economic law

This reflects the inherent sovereignty of a state to control its people, incidents and objects found on its territory. Between these rights, the situation of indirect expropriation appears which has been described in the doctrine as being very abstract and rigid, big lacunae existing.

  • Some considerations on the general partnership

    The general partnership is the prototype of company of persons, since it is set up and functions based on the personal qualities of the associates, who know each other and trust each other, reason for which they agree to be unlimitedly and jointly bound for the obligations of the company they set up. Although this legal form of company is not very widespread in practice, which is undoubtedly explained by the risk determined by the unlimited and joint liability of the associates, the general partnership still presents some unquestionable advantages, worth to be emphasized, starting from the simplicity of the rules concerning its setting up and functioning, or the possibility of its creation even in the absence of initial contributions of significant value.
