This book - by one of the leading British experts on company law - has been written specially for directors of companies and their professional advisors. It deals specifically with the Consolidated Companies Act 1985 and the Insolvency Act 1986 - both of which have increased the burden of responsability of company directors - and sets out all the ways in which a director may become personally liable either as a result of statute or court decisions.
