The role of the Company Director is subject to an ever-increasing range of legal and regulatory responsibilities and liabilities, emanating from legislation, corporate governance and the common law. The position is often ‘accepted’ without due diligence as to the potential pitfalls and without any professional advice or training, particularly in SME’s. This course explores the rules and best practice relevant to all directors, whether of private or public companies and will be of practical application with an emphasis on current case law.  Topics to be covered:

  • The nature of the company
  • Minimising risk through corporate structure
  • Who can be a Director?
  • The role of the Director
  • De jure, de facto and shadow directors
  • Directors’ duties
  • The risk of personal responsibility
  • Derivative claims and unfair prejudice
  • Indemnity and D&O insurance
  • Transactions requiring shareholder approval
  • Recent developments

This Seminar will be presented by Stephen Broomhall. Stephen is a solicitor and a chartered arbitrator with 35 years of practical experience in company, contract and commercial work. He is a highly experienced speaker and delivers comprehensive technical expertise combined with exemplary presentation skills.  Stephen is renowned for his practical, pragmatic and humorous delivery.
