Duties & Responsibilities of Directors


With increased consolidation of business across Europe, executives of multinational groups can find that they are required to become directors of companies in a variety of jurisdictions, often at short notice. The Guide is intended to provide an overview of the duties and responsibilities of directors across 23 countries in Europe – with Luxembourg and Portugal new in this edition – answering the most frequently asked questions for directors coming from another jurisdiction.

The CMS Corporate Group is delighted to launch an updated and extended version of the existing brochure from 2010, the CMS Guide on Duties & Responsibilities of Directors. The CMS Corporate publication is an excellent piece of know-how to help clients to assess for each jurisdiction on the most common form of company, and on the rules which apply to executive/managing directors.
