One of the differences between limited liability companies and joint-stock companies is on the shareholders’ prohibition of competition with the company. Whereas in limited liability companies shareholders are prohibited from competing with the company, there is no such clear prohibition in law for the shareholders of joint-stock companies. However, there is a school of thought that argues that, in certain circumstances where the shareholders have direct control over the daily affairs of the company, the same prohibition of competition which is applied to the shareholders of limited liability companies should also be applied to the shareholders of joint-stock companies. For more information on the discussion of applicability of prohibition of competition for the shareholders of joint-stock companies, please check this ARTICLE.
