Directors acting reasonably have nothing to fear!

Legal news

In my previous contribution, I explained that in principle, a director of a Dutch company cannot evade their personal liability by hiding behind one or more companies. I briefly discussed the various bases of directors’ and officers’ liability. In this contribution, I am dealing in greater depth with the internal directors’ and officers’ liability, and I am giving concrete practical examples. In my opinion, it is not desirable for directors to allow their policy or conduct to be influenced by an unfounded fear of liability. After all, directors acting reasonably have nothing to fear!
