Managing a corporation will frequently require balancing a range of different and sometimes competing interests. A corporation’s directors and officers must be diligent to ensure they act in accordance with their common law, equitable and fiduciary duties, as well as the duties contained in the Corporations Act.
With the broader range of instances in which directors may become personally liable, either on their own account or for the acts and omissions of their corporation, the need for the individual director to have a comprehensive understanding of these obligations has never been more crucial.
A corporation’s members and shareholders may have various rights and remedies open to them where a company’s management embarks on a course that affects them in an unfair or prejudicial manner.
Composite Law is experienced in advising and representing parties in a range of corporate governance matters, from advice on statutory compliance and directors’ duties, to dispute resolution on behalf of members, directors or the company.
