Directors and Conflicts of Duty

Conflicts are a constant source of concern and complexity for directors. Understanding and managing requirements applicable to conflicting duties can be particularly challenging. In this presentation Dr Langford will discuss legal principles applicable in the regulation of conflicting duties, with particular focus on competing (and multiple) directorships, nominee directorships and group company directorships. There will be opportunity for discussion and questions at the end of the presentation.
