Directors Duties
Directors of a company have many for reaching and imposing statutory duties. The consequences for a Director who breaches any of the above duties can be very serious. It is important for Directors to be conversant with the law as they may incur personal liability, both civil and criminal, for their acts or omissions in directing the company.
Companies need to have robust policies and procedures in place to ensure that such duties are exercised properly and are capable of being evidenced.

Breach of Contract and Fiduciary Claims
Sometimes an individual in a fiduciary position take advantage of their position both with and without an intention to act dishonestly. As a fiduciary the individual will be liable to account for any profit made by reason of their position/ office. In some circumstances this property received can be traced through to third parties. Moreover, if the profit has been spent or disposed off, the individual will remain personally liable. We have experience of advising on such matters and the best course of action to take.
