Directors & Insolvency - The Latest Law & Practice with Stephen Allinson
There has perhaps never been a greater focus on the roles and responsibilities of directors than we see today, particularly when corporate failure is involved.
In 2015, new provisions to 'toughen up' the director disqualification regime came into force, but there is still a feeling amongst creditors that more can be done to protect them. The Government proposed a series of new measures in 2018 which demonstrated a further commitment to reform in this arena.
