Liability of Corporate Officers

Lawyers from the Commercial Law and International Trade Department offer consultancy in the area of the organisational, civil and criminal liability of corporate officers such as management board members, attorneys-in-fact, company authorised signatories and members of supervisory boards. A complex plethora of laws imposing liability, including such statutes as the Commercial Partnerships and Companies Code, Labour Code, Insolvency and Rehabilitation Act, to name only a few, may result in a person being held legally liable for occurrences which cannot be reasonably attributed to the person’s direct fault.

We work in partnership with our clients, delivering advice on the detailed wording of the relevant legal duties and proposing solutions which enable them to transfer risk to individuals actually in charge. Thanks to our support, corporate officers may do business fully aware of any potential consequences of their decisions.
