Research Handbook on Directors’ Duties

Research Handbooks in Corporate Law and Governance series

Edited by Adolfo Paolini, Senior Lecturer in Commercial Law, University of Buckingham Law School and Consultant, DACBeachcroft LLP, London, UK

Directors’ duties and liabilities have become the centre of a general legal discussion following the 2008 financial scandal that resulted in global recession. Questions have arisen regarding the ways in which the directors of the world’s major financial institutions have handled their duties and how their decisions have impacted investors, shareholders and consumers. This detailed ƒHandbook discusses the nature of the relationship between a company and its directors, assessing issues such as how duties are discharged, liabilities that may arise and what interests directors should consider before embarking on commercial ventures.

‘If you are professionally involved in, or merely interested in the financial services industry and its collective stance on such issues as social responsibility as well as profit, you should really acquire this absorbing, carefully researched and very timely book.’
