Piercing the Corporate Veil in Insolvency - Latest Law & Practice for Litigators
The principles of limited liability and separate legal personality are fundamental to company law, yet much criticised by creditors who lose money when companies fail.
In recent years there has been a focus from the Government to look to crack down on those who abuse their limited liability privileges. But is the law doing enough in this area ? Are directors at risk personally when the company they have been running fails?
This webinar will look at the latest law and practice and analyse how and when the corporate veil can be pierced. It will analyse whether trends on legal actions can be shown and give practical advice to litigators who advise or defend directors and others who may face personal claims against them. It will be fully up to date with reference to the latest legislation and case law.
