Directors’ liability arises from risks that come in the form of operational, legal, financial, compliance, technology and investment risks. Management must protect itself by means of proper risk management and observation of its fiduciary duties. This session will explore the directors’ liability in the context of both day to day operations and events beyond the management of the day to day affairs, such as take-over or other M&A situations and to what extent management is protected by the business judgement rule and directors and officers liability insurance.
