This essay presents the most important legal regulations for protection of shareholders rights. The following work will concentrate on two legal systems, namely Swedish and Polish. The goal is to compare legal regulations concerning the protection of minority shareholders and finding the relevant similarities and, even more importantly, the differences characteristically for each country. The context of the presentation is to clarify what possibilities a potential investor possesses when becoming an shareholder in a Swedish or a Polish company. This thesis embraces the essential issues of principle of equality and the principle of majority, the two leading thoughts in the company law structure in those two countries concerned. It also presents a more general introduction to most essential regulations that will provide widespread information for the individual shareholder. Based on the law rules and doctrine, this thesis will end in important conclusions reinforced by scientific articles. The overall result is that both of the legal systems provide for very similar regulations mainly because of the influences from the European Union. Therefore some vital comparison with the European documents will take place in the discussion. This essay is also a source of other, non-judicial considerations. Some of the facts concerning the economic freedom of the two countries in focus will be presented. Some economic perspectives and disputes will be introduced from an international point of view. Those topics will provide a presentation of the resent research and legal issues in developing and mature economies. Those presentations should be seen as example rather than general matters of concern in the studied countries. The reader is also given the opportunity to directly exploit the original paragraphs of the polish law rules, which simplifies the verification of the truthfulness of this paper. (Less)
