Advising and Defending Directors of Insolvent Companies Webinar (On-Demand)
Directors of insolvent companies need sound legal advice to avoid the risk of personal liability (both civil and criminal) for a company’s debts and their breaches of their fiduciary duties. This webinar covers those issues and also considers disqualification proceedings, which may threaten the directors ongoing ability to trade and how they can seek leave of the court to remain a director.
It explains the legal and practical advice that practitioners need to give to directors of companies which have or are about to enter into an insolvency procedure, and provides helpful tips for protecting those directors against future claims.
It will be of interest not only to insolvency lawyers but also commercial practitioners in private practice and in-house and gives a practical overview, which is key to the corporate client.
