Liability of company directors

Being held liable in your capacity as the director of a limited company can easily be a very serious business. Indeed, you could even be held liable for all the debts of a bankrupt company whose director you are, or once were.

So there’s every reason for preventing such a situation from arising. We advise company boards on how to limit the risks. Thanks to our knowledge of and experience in corporate governance and our familiarity with statutory regulations and court judgements, we are excellently placed to deliver sound, practical advice. Experience has taught us that company directors feel (and indeed are) far more comfortable when told in clear terms what to expect. We can give you a quick low-down on the traps and pitfalls. Four of our lawyers are also regularly appointed as receivers in bankruptcy proceedings, thus giving us plenty of experience in seeing things from the other side of the fence.

We can provide you with legal assistance if you find yourself facing a liability claim, in your capacity as a managing or supervisory director, from a receiver, creditor or other party. Combining an in-depth knowledge of the law on company directors' liability with a pragmatic approach, we remain at your side throughout the process.
