Introduction

This webinar will help you to understand the legislation behind each duty and practical suggestions to aid compliance, avoid liability and explore the key duties that apply to directors of a private limited company.

It will also extrapolate key insights and ideas that are relevant for private companies raised by the Guidance on Directors' Duties published by The Association of General Counsel and Company Secretaries Working in FTSE 100 Companies (‘GC 100’) together with the application of two recent cases to the legislation.

If you are a solicitor or accountant new to advising private companies in the UK, or a company director keen to ensure compliance, then this webinar is for you.
