Third Edition

Edited by Simon Mortimore QC

  • The most authoritative and comprehensive single-volume work on directors' duties
  • Covers specialist topics such as directors and taxation, and directors' liability to third parties, including in the event of insolvency

New to this Edition:

  • An entirely new chapter on civil penalties (including injunctions and restitution orders) for market abuse, describing the provisions of the Market Abuse Directive which came into force in July 2016
  • A rewritten chapter on directors' disqualification, reflecting the extensive reforms made by the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Act 2015
  • Also covers the new UK Corporate Governance Code and Part 7 of the Financial Services Act 2012 concerning criminal sanction for misleading statements and practices
  • Expanded analysis of a director's exposure to third-party claims and of multiple derivative claims
