Expert Directors Duties Lawyers

As a director, you have a legal duty to act in the best interests of the company and its shareholders. This includes a duty to exercise care, skill, and diligence, as well as a duty to disclose any conflicts of interest. Director duty breaches can occur when these obligations are not met, and the consequences can be severe, including fines, penalties, and even criminal charges.
