The misfeasance and antecedent transactions provisions of the Insolvency Act 1986 (as amended) and significant provisions of the Companies Act 2006, may require a director to personally contribute back to the assets of an insolvent company for the benefit of its creditors.

This course is intended for insolvency practitioners and their staff looking for a comprehensive CPD refresher on directors' personal liability and the risks to directors on insolvency, together with an update on the key provisions of the legislation and case law.

This course will aid you in discussions with directors about risk before and during the corporate insolvency process.
