General description NOTA: Els recents canvis legislatius han suposat la derogació de les lleis de societats anònimes i de responsabilitat limitada, refonent-les en una única norma: la Llei de Societats de Capital, de 2 de juliol de 2010. Per això, i amb la finalitat d'una major claredat pedagògica, hem considerat oportú revisar i actualitzar els temes corresponents a les esmentades figures societàries.
