The Director's Handbook: Your Duties, Responsibilities and Liabilities: 18

by Martin Webster (Editor), Institute of Directors (Author), Pinsent Masons (Author)


The "Director's Handbook", first published in 2005, filled a gap in the market by providing a practical guide to key issues facing board directors and senior business decision-makers. Now, with far-reaching changes in directors' duties and other principles of company law, this new edition updates and explains the laws which affect the way every director does their job. It deals with all aspects of a company director's role, duties, responsibilities and liabilities within the context of the current law and good practice. Written by leading experts and fully supported by research findings, it also contains case studies (named or unnamed) from companies of varying size and sector. The "Director's Handbook" is the essential reference and source of advice for all new and existing directors, as well as those who aspire to this position.
