Andrew Thompson KC, who was lead counsel for the Appellant, explains the impact of the first Supreme Court case to have considered directors’ duties to consider and act in the interests of a company’s creditors where the company is insolvent or approaching insolvency, which Lady Arden described as a “momentous” decision for company law.

This Webinar covers 4 themes:

1.A summary of the case – the key facts and claims

2.What the Supreme Court decided – and how it has changed the law

3.What it left undecided – whether preserving existing authority or leaving uncertainty

4.Most importantly, the practical impact of the decision on claims and on the task of advising boards.
