Directors' duties - just what do they mean?

 Company directors are being invited to update themselves on the latest legislation at a special breakfast briefing in Telford.

One of the UK’s leading commercial law barristers, Mohammed Zaman QC, will be the guest speaker at the event on September 11.

Directors – Do You Know Your Duties?, has been organised by Telford law firm Martin-Kaye, and is being held at the company's headquarters at The Foundry, Euston Way, starting at 8am.

“Many people take a seat at the boardroom table without appreciating the full responsibilities of the role, or keeping abreast of changing rules,” said Martin-Kaye commercial lawyer Andrew Oranjuik.

“Mohammed Zaman is one of the best commercial law barristers in the country, and is renowned for his intimidating cross-examination skills, and his own unique and entertaining presentation style.

“So much complex legislation which could impact on company directors has been introduced in recent years, and it is sometimes hard to keep track. And in reality, if you don’t comply with the legislation, you could ultimately face serious consequences, so it really is crucial to be well-informed.

“The aim of this breakfast briefing is to give people the chance to update themselves on all the latest rules, from one of the best in the business, and to learn from shared experiences.”

Places at the seminar are limited, and anyone wanting to reserve their spot should call June Noto on 01952 272222, or email

“This is a rare opportunity for Shropshire businesspeople to meet and learn from one of the experts in his field, on their own doorstep. And who can afford to miss out on such invaluable advice when the consequences of getting it wrong could be so drastic?”
