Seat (legal entity)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In legal English, the seat of a corporation or organisation, as a legal entity, is the location of its headquarters.[1] According to international and national procedural law, "specific legal actions with legal effect for and against the legal entity can be performed at the seat of this entity."[1] However, "the term 'seat' is sometimes also used in a broad sense without a specific legal meaning. In this case [it] only defines where an entity is located and does not mean that this location is a legal seat where specific juridical acts can be performed."[1]
