GREGOROVÁ ŠIRICOVÁ, Ľ.: Derivative action (actio pro socio) against director – First part

Právny obzor, 99, 2016, č. 5, s. 378 – 400.

Abstract. Derivative action (actio pro socio) against director – First part. This paper of two parts is an analysis of the mechanism also known as actio pro socio (or derivative action). It is focused on the lawsuit brought by a shareholder of a corporation on its behalf to claim damages caused to the company by its director. The various names for that legal instrument, its doctrinal bases (reflective loss) and historical and comparative background are examined in the first chapter. The second chapter is focused on the conditions to bring actio pro socio according to the Slovak Commercial Code. We identified several question marks in the statutory provisions (changes in the person of the shareholder, changes in the person of the director, disposition with the claim). The third chapter deals with the effectivity of actio pro socio considering the low number of cases in the Slovak courts. Throughout the analysis we take into account the Czech recodification of private law as a possible inspiration for the readjustment of the actio pro socio in the Slovak recodification of private law.

Key words: lawsuit by a shareholder in the name of a corporation, actio pro socio, derivative action, reflective loss
