The law relating to directors' duties has fundamental implications across the business environment, and yet few areas of business law have received so little detailed examination. This work offers insights into the rules applying in ten major economic jurisdictions within Europe with respect to directors' legal obligations and liabilities.

Each contribution outlines the statutory provisions that affect the work of company directors in each jurisdiction, including general legislation and specific laws covering the status of incorporated bodies. Illustrated with case-law examples the book provides a guide to the range of measures which national courts may provide for participants in corporate life seeking remedies for unsatisfactory governance of companies.

It also features guidance on the specific bases for criminal and civil liabilities and examples of the range of penalties to which directors might be subject.
