5 Series Webinar: five top tips for directors
February 15, 2018
Hosted by Dispute Resolution Partner, Christine Oxenburgh
A director is an appointed or elected member of the board of directors of companies who, along with other directors, have the responsibility for determining and implementing company policy.
As a director, your duties are a series of statutory, common law and equitable obligations owed primarily by the director(s) of the company. However, if a director is in breach of their duties, the company itself can bring a claim against the erring director if it can demonstrate a decline in company performance, as a result. A risk not many directors will want to take.
Corporate / Commercial dispute buster, Christine Oxenburgh, shares her top five tips for directors to ensure they are fully performing their duties. Christine focuses in particular on:
- The duty to promote the success of the Company, what it means in practice;
- What level of skill is expected from directors;
- Conflicts of interest and how to deal with them;
- Post resignation;
- Minutes matter. The importance of writing it down and what to write.
If you have any further questions with regards to directors duties please contact Christine Oxenburgh directly who will be more than happy to provide more guidance where necessary.
