Legal Advice for Company Directors

Being a company director is fraught with risk and complexity, particularly when a company is in financial difficulty. Risks include personal liability for debts or losses to the company, director disqualification and criminal prosecutions.

Directors are expected to have high levels of competence and knowledge, and it is important to seek professional advice when required. The experienced team at JMW offers practical, specialist advice to directors or former directors on a wide range of issues, including obligations, responsibilities and liabilities.
