Directors liabilities and responsibilities in corporate insolvencies


Panellists will present a multi-jurisdictional review of directors’ responsibilities both before and during insolvency. When insolvency strikes, how should directors exercise their powers and in whose interests must they act? If directors breach their duties, what regulatory, civil, or criminal consequences may be imposed? How can directors successfully discharge their duties and avoid liability? Do directors’ responsibilities impair the ability of companies to maximize recoveries for creditors?
