The article "Bestätigungsvermerk des Wirtschaftsprüfers und KapMuG - Zur Konkretisierung des Begriffs der öffentlichen Kapitalmarktinformation" (Auditors report and the German Capital Markets Model Case Act) published in the Zeitschrift für Bank- und Kapitalmarktrecht (BKR 5/2022) was translated into Chinese and has since been published in the Journal of Hangzhou Normal University (Social Sciences Edition): 杭州师范大学学报(社会科学版), 2023 (5), pp. 110-127 .
New publication: Möllers, Auditors report and the German Capital Markets Model Case Act (KapMuG) - legal consequences for EY in the Wirecard scandal
In Volume 19 of the Capital Markets Law Journal (CMLJ) Professor Möllers' article "Auditors report and the German Capital Markets Model Case Act (KapMuG) - legal consequences for EY in the Wirecard scandal" deals with the accounting fraud and ensuing insolvency of Wirecard which have had an enormous impact. Claims from aggrieved investors are now before the courts. As the listed company is insolvent, many claims have instead been lodged against its auditors, EY. Within this framework, the cases should be joined together where possible. Several Regional Courts have rejected the material scope of application of the Capital Markets Model Case Act (KapMuG), but the Third Chamber of the Regional Court of Munich I (LG) has opened proceedings under the Act. This requires the auditors report on the company's annual financial statements to qualify as “public capital market information” pursuant to Section 1(2) of the Act. Because the issue has not yet been discussed, arguments created by legal reasoning must be used to clarify whether claims for damages against the auditors report can be made the establishment objective of proceedings under the Act.
On Friday, November 17, the graduates of the 2022/2023 class of the Munich Intellectual Property Law Center (MIPLC) received their Master of Laws (LL.M.) as part of the 20th graduation ceremony.
