Directors of UK companies have an extensive range of legal responsibilities, not just in relation to managing the company but also to employees, shareholders, customers and other stakeholders.

Now in its fifth edition, The ICSA Director’s Guide explains all the core duties and liabilities of being a director from appointment to resignation, including disclosures, shareholder relations and corporate governance.

The fifth edition has been revised to take account of recent developments such as:

  • Recent FRC Guidance and recommendations on board effectiveness.
  • Developments in relation to board composition and diversity, differentiation in roles of board members and the importance of training and development of directors.
  • Updates to corporate governance arrangements in light of the amended UK Corporate Governance Code, the EU Corporate Governance Green Paper, the Walker Report and Turner Review.
