Directors’ Duties

All directors have a number of duties or obligations under the Corporations Act. These duties apply whether or not the director is active in the business. These laws can also apply to managers and other staff acting in a management role.

We advise directors and managers about their obligations.

We also advise insolvency practitioners and creditors about potential claims they can bring against directors personally.
