joint-stock association

joint-stock association
joint-stock association or company
An unincorporated business enterprise with ownership interests represented by shares of stock. This type enterprise was recognized at common law and by statute is generally treated as a corporate entity for certain purposes. Such entities bear a resemblance to both a corporation and a partnership. They appear to be like corporations to the extent that they have capital stock, but are not treated as corporations in many jurisdictions. Brocki v. American Express Co., C.A.Mich., 279 F.2d 785, 787
