Deborah Robinson to Speak at Cowens Survival Capability’s Directors Seminar

On 7th November 2017 Deborah Robinson, Regulatory Solicitor at Cartwright King, will be speaking at a free event organised by Cowens Survival Capability focussing on the duties and liabilities of company directors.

Deborah will be speaking about some of the criminal pitfalls of being a company director including:

  • what it means to be a director;
  • what the duties of directors are and how they can be liable; and
  • what more directors can be doing to protect themselves and their businesses

Doors open at 8:30am for refreshments before the seminar begins at 9:00am and finishes at 10:15am.

Cowens Survival Capability explain:

Administrators, managers and directors of any company, regardless of its size or activities, carry significant responsibilities in relation to the way they conduct themselves. We continue to live in an increasingly litigious environment and there is a growing bodies or authorities who can investigate a company. Today more attention is being focused on smaller companies.

Actions against the company and its management can involve a high degree of personal ability for the individuals. With potential penalties that range from hefty fines, all the way to disqualification and possible imprisonment, the need for an immediate and effective response to any threat is clear.

Please take this opportunity to discover how the latest changes in legislation and recent revisions in sentencing guidelines can have a very real impact on your personal exposures and liabilities.
