Overview

The recent Supreme Court decision of Debut Homes Limited highlights the implications for directors of companies facing solvency challenges. The current COVID-19 economic environment has heightened these implications, calling on the need for directors to be alert to their duties and obligations when determining a company’s financial position.

Chris Baldock – director, PwC Legal, will accompany Tom to share updates to the employment law and what this means for directors.
