Essai d'une théorie générale de l'interposition de personne : de l'action en nom propre pour le compte d'autrui

Abstract : In the common language, acting through intermediaries can be defined as the method which consists in appealing to an intermediary in oder to serve as e screen for the one who really takes advantage of a contract. In the french law, a lot of legal methods meet, under various designations, this broad definition : "convention de prête-nom" (figurehead clause), "contrat de commission" (messenger contract), "clause de reserve de command" (clause of reserve for a friend), "société-écran" (screen-society), "société fictive" (fictitious society), etc. The aim of the thesis is to show the advisability of gathering them under a unitary legal concept and to build a general theory of action through intermediaries [note : in English law, this theme corresponds more or less to the theory of undisclosed principal]. Indeed, despite a great variety of forms, characteristics and legal definitions, all these methods have in common the same problematics and seem to obey to some common, implicit rules. Underlining these common elements naturally leads to the study of the ambiguous and complex relationship between the action through intermediaries and several basic mechanisms of the french law, in particular "representation" (agency) and "simulation" (shamming).
