Claims Examples:

  • Charges of manslaughter and Health and Safety breaches brought against company directors following an on-site fatal accident.

  • Claims made against company directors following allegations of misrepresentation of a company’s financial standing.

  • Allegations of insolvent trading against company directors, with the potential for court awards, costs and/or disqualification as a company director.

  • Claims can emanate from a wide variety of sources, including Shareholders/Investors, Health & Safety Executive, Government Agencies, creditors etc.
