Directors' Duties Checklists 2014

The Directors' Duties Checklist is a joint project of the Corporate and M&A Law Committee and the Corporate Counsel Forum, originally published in 2011. Many of the submissions have been updated for 2014.
  
The checklist is is designed to provide guidance to in-house counsel of multi-national companies who want a practical perspective on the duties of directors. It will also be helpful to lawyers that would like an overview of the legislation and regulations relevant to directors' duties in many jurisdictions worldwide..
 
I, along with my co-editors,  Guy Harles and Thomas Hickey, wish to thank all of the authors for sharing their expertise and for doing so in a very short timeframe. We also wish to thank Antje Reibold and Elizabeth Bennett for all of their assistance on the project.
 
Readers are invited to contact the authors directly with questions.  Readers are also encouraged to contact Guy at guy.harles@arendt-medernach.com, Thomas Hickey at thomas.hickey@hess.com or me at ehabbart@decg.com if you do not see your country represented below and wish to make a contribution to the checklist.
 
Best regards,
