Company Directors’ Responsibilities
Company directors' responsibilities are wide and diverse. Their duties arise primarily from two sources: statute (Acts of the Oireachtas and other legislation e.g. EU Regulations) and common law.
Directors’ common law duties can be summarised into three principles:
Duties as a company officer under the Companies Acts;
