The Companies Act 2006 has involved a major overhaul, codification and consolidation of the common law rules and principles relating to the duties of company directors. At the same time, the Act introduces new concepts, such as conflict of interest, which come into force in October 2008.

Directors' Duties provides a fresh examination of this topic in light of the codification of those duties, explaining the role of directors within the corporate governance process. This is coupled with authoritative guidance and detailed analysis on:

  • The consequences of breach of duties
  • Relief that can be ordered
  • Potential defences
  • How the new statutory derivative proceedings apply to directors' breach of duties
While no UK case law exists on this new area of law, the author, who is the Commonwealth Editor of Gore-Browne on Companies, has uniquely turned to case law from the Commonwealth and United States where similar laws have existed for some time for an indication of how the law is likely to be interpreted here.

Directors' Duties provides much needed guidance for company and in-house lawyers, accountants, directors and company secretaries on this area of key concern.
