This chapter presents the overall picture of the state of the art of European company law after the 2007/08 financial crisis. Citing a number of examples, it warns that the crisis has brought a temptation for many Member States to lock up their markets. The most obvious example is the regulation of third-country Sovereign Wealth Funds; but also that states may link bail out payments and subsidies to policies of the failing companies to save jobs at home and give preference to national contract partners.

Keywords: European company law; financial crisis; financial law; European Union; protectionism; Sovereign Wealth Funds
