Synopsis The issue of civil liability for commercial company managers is often treated as an autonomous issue – the principles and rules contained in the Commercial Companies Code and (now) the Insolvency and Business Recovery Code would deviate from the principles and of general rules on civil liability (contractual and non-contractual).
The problem can, however, be rebuilt as a problem of coordination between three systems – between civil law, company law and insolvency law systems. The complementary types of responsibility of arts. 72, 78 and 79 of the Commercial Companies Code and Articles 186 and 189 of the Code on Insolvency and Business Recovery must be interpreted within a context given by the value judgments of civil law.
