Directors' liability

 

In principle, a limited company is an independent entity in which none of the directors or shareholders has any personal liability for the enterprise's breach of duties or obligations. The principle, however, impose a duty of care on the directors, shareholders and auditor of the company. This is why Norwegian law contain provisions that lay down such individual liability on board members, managing director, shareholders and even the auditor, in case their negligence cause loss to creditor and any third party or the company itself. Our special legal area is to consider such individual liability and advise and assist our clients in dispute resolution and litigation.
