Director's liability

Leading a company brings tremendous responsibilities with it. The actions of a managing director or CEO are binding upon the company, after all. An error or omission during the performance of this person’s duties as the managing director or CEO of a company can result in serious consequences, and even cause damage to the company. In certain cases, a managing director can be held personally accountable for this, and this can have serious repercussions for his or her private assets.

Directors’ liability as described above is often invoked in cases where a company is in financial difficulties.

DLPA Advocaten will, in first case, endeavour to arrive at an amicable solution in consultation with the parties involved, but if this is not feasible, we can also defend your interests optimally within the context of legal proceedings. This applies both to managing directors or CEOs risking directors’ liability as well as the opposite scenario, in relation to errors made by managing directors or CEOs.
