In these times of increasing exposure to liability from all aspects of doing business, it is important for directors and officers of companies to understand all their legal risks and obligations, and to have in place appropriate governance, risk management and compliance frameworks to ensure they meet all areas of responsibility. In particular, minority shareholders and lenders to businesses are increasingly seeking assurance that the entity in which they have invested has these systems in place as they act as a guard against potential losses.
