Appleby holds directors’ duties seminar in Guernsey
Appleby has held a seminar entitled ‘Directors — do you know your duties?’, which was held on 15 November at the Old Government House Hotel, St Peter Port, Guernsey.
The seminar was chaired by Jeremy Le Tissier, litigation and insolvency practice group head and partner, and included discussons by Anthony Williams, a member of Appleby’s lititgation and insolvency group, and Matthew Wrigley and Chet Pohl, members of Appleby’s corporate and commercial funds team.
The seminar, which attracted more than 60 attendees, was started by keynote speaker Ben Shaw from Erskine Chambers, who covered his involvement in recent UK cases.
This was followed by a panel session that considered the current law of directors’ duties in Guernsey and how Appleby considers that cases in other developed jurisdictions may potentially affect the development of the law in Guernsey, including the modern evolution of a director’s role, particularly in the context of financial reporting obligations.
