Affectio societatis is the common will of several legal persons or legal entities to merge into one entity.[1] It is a key characteristic of a company under French law. Articles 1832 and 1833 of the French Civil Code[2] form the basis of this principle, although since there is no statutory definition, it has also been shaped by jurisprudence.
