The seminar which attracted over 60 attendess was kicked off by key note speaker, Ben Shaw from Erskine Chambers, who covered his involvement in recent UK cases.  This was followed by a panel session that considered the current law of directors’ duties in Guernsey, and how Appleby considers that cases in other developed jurisdictions may potentially impact the development of the law in Guernsey including the modern evolution of a Director’s role, particularly in the context of financial reporting obligations.

Jeremy Le Tissier commented “We had a great turn out to the seminar this morning which is a reflection of the need of directors’ to be kept abreast of the changing nature of directors’ duties across the globe. It is important that Directors here in Guernsey are kept well-informed of global legal trends in all key financial markets and the implications for how Boards conduct themselves in the modern world.”
