Director's Personal Liability

Director's Personal Liability

Postby optimist22 » Mon Nov 14, 2016 12:31 pm

If, in a Private Limited Company, a director acts within his powers and does nothing fraudulent can he be sued personally by another Company director for the consequences of any decisions taken ?

Anyone can always be sued.

Let's assume the OP means sued successfully. This may be possible in some circumstances.

We are given no clue what might have given rise to this question.

Can he not be negligent?

That is one of the possibilities I had in mind.

Thanks I appreciate all of the replies. However, if I give too many details - there are many factors - it will probably be going beyond the scope of the forum and seeking advice. I do try to be good.

Also I wouldn't want to make the case identifiable to anyone who may come to the site.

Thanks again
