Fiduciary Duties Hardback
This book discusses in detail the law relating to the fiduciary duties owed by directors and employees to companies which is complex and involves several overlapping areas of law.
It is, however, a relatively commonplace cause of action; individuals in positions of trust within a company are often tempted to abuse their position in order to commit fraud, steal company assets or secrets, set up in competition, and poach staff and customers.
This new edition of Fiduciary Duties: Directors and Employees contains commentary on a number of new cases alongside further commentary and analysis on the developing jurisprudence in relation to the fiduciary duties of LLP members and joint venturers.
There have been substantial developments in the law since the first edition, including a number of important decisions of the House of Lords and Supreme Court which are the subject of sustained treatment.
This new edition of Fiduciary Duties: Directors and Employees is an essential research reference for anyone practising in this area of the law.
