Comparative law notes


Under the common law, this phrase refers to an action brought by one partner against his co-partners to compel them to carry out the terms of the partnership agreement. Since the traditional German definition of this same phrase is identical - i.e., meaning that one or more owner/partner/shareholder enforces a claim against his co-owner/co-partner/co-shareholder(s) - one can use the phrase as a full matching "translation".
