Corporate and M&A Law/Corporate Counsel Forum: Directors' Duties Checklist

The Directors' Duties Checklist is a joint project of the Corporate and M&A Law Committee and the Corporate Counsel Forum.

The checklist provides a practical perspective on the duties of directors imposed by jurisdictions around the world and includes an overview of the applicable statutory and regulatory regime in each jurisdiction.

The first set of guides for this checklist was released in 2011 and has been updated in 2014, 2018 and 2022.

The co-editors, Rodrigo Ferreira Figueiredo and Dagmar Dubecká, wish to thank all of the authors for sharing their expertise.

Readers are invited to contact the authors directly with questions. Readers are also encouraged to contact us at rodrigof@mattosfilho.com.br or ddubecka@ksb.cz if your country is not represented below and you wish to contribute to the checklist.

Best regards,

Rodrigo Ferreira Figueiredo and Dagmar Dubecká
Corporate and M&A Law Committee
