We are delighted to now be offering these training sessions on-line. We do hope you can join us at one of the sessions.

The role of a company director is a busy one, to say the least.  On top of all the day-to-day work there’s the need to keep up with seemingly ever-changing duties and responsibilities imposed by corporate governance rules and legislation. Can you really be sure you’ve for everything covered?

Our online training sessions will help you make sure you’re doing everything that’s expected so that you don’t fall foul of the law.  There’s also opportunity to get your questions answered with invaluable advice from our legal team.

Why attend?

This course is delivered by Amy Wanless, a corporate governance expert from our corporate legal team.  It’s designed to ensure you:

•   clearly understand the role, duties and responsibilities imposed on directors

•   manage potential risks if directors fail to meet those standards

•   reduce the chances of future financial and personal penalties

There’s also the chance to get your questions answered with practical advice from a specialist restructuring partner.

This course will also help companies and their boards demonstrate that they have taken positive steps to make sure their directors have been properly trained and fully understand the role.
