Despite limited liability company directors can be personally liable for the actions and debts of their company.
We have considerable experience of defending directors from regulatory claims, misfeasance claims by liquidators, preferences and misappropriation. We also represent directors for claims by companies after directors have moved on.
These cases can involve allegations of negligence, failure to fulfil statutory duties or fraud.
We have experience in working on cases involving complex financial arrangements such as cross firing fraud, Ponzi schemes and inter jurisdictional carousel frauds. Defending such allegations requires strong analytical skills, a measured approach and an understanding of where the most effective intervention can be made.
