Directors' Liabilities

Directors' Liabilities
Add to CPD Planner


There is an increasing focus on holding directors personally liable for perceived shortcomings in the performance of their duties upon insolvency and in an expanding range of areas including health and safety and cartel conduct.

How can directors execute their core role of adding value to shareholders’ investments while protecting themselves from potential personal liability, civil and criminal?

This webinar will consider some of the key issues in this area and enable you to provide your clients, whether directors, shareholders or insolvency practitioners, with practical advice.

The presentation will include commentary on recent Court of Appeal and Supreme Court decisions, as well as consideration of practical protective measures, such as directors’ indemnities and insurance, and their limitations.
