Administrators, managers and directors of any company, regardless of its size or activities, carry significant responsibilities in relation to the way they conduct themselves and justify the trust placed in them. This may result in claims against them for actual or alleged breach of duty, neglect, misstatements, errors and omissions.
There is a growing number of governing bodies or authorities who can investigate a company and today, more attention is being focused on smaller companies. Even if an individual is not yet personally under investigation, immediate expert legal guidance can help and perhaps, better manage the situation.
As directors and managers are jointly and severally liable, an error on the part of one can have financial and personal consequences for the others, who may have acted with propriety. Strong cover, that ring-fences the cover individuals can receive, can help build the confidence required to work together.
In Singapore's increasingly litigious business environment, companies and their directors and officers are subjected to more onerous duties and responsibilities, and face a growing risk of being the target of legal action as a result of the management and business decisions they take.
Increased supervision from the regulators and government authorities and potential litigation from breaches of the Securities and Futures have motivated directors and officers to take a more active interest in their company's affairs.
In spite of this exposure, a significant number of directors and officers do not have adequate management liability insurance in place.
