Implementation of the Companies Act 2006 has continued through 2008, and with it the spotlight has fallen on the duties of company directors. This makes it more vital than ever that directors are fully aware of the extent of their responsibilities and the penalties awaiting those who are unprepared.

The Company Director: Powers, Duties and Liabilities is essential reading for all company directors, company secretaries and their advisers. It provides comprehensive coverage, in a single volume, of the powers, legal obligations and responsibilities of executive and non-executive company directors. The complex relationships of directors with fellow directors, the company, its employees and shareholders are fully explained.

Now in its 11th edition, this well respected and established work has been thoroughly updated to take account of directors’ duties that took effect on 01 October 2008:-

  • The duty to avoid conflicts of interest
  • The duty not to accept benefits from third parties
  • The obligation to declare an interest in a proposed transaction or arrangement
