client relations

when a firm acts for a company, would you expect the firm to discuss with any director or just a group of directors? shouldn't the law firm remain impartial with respect to which Director or directors they talk to?

I obtain authority to take instructions from the director or directors the company wishes me to deal with on its behalf.

does that mean you will not speak to certain directors if you are asked not to by the instructing Director?

then aren't you acting for the director rather than the company? you can only act on what you are told, which may not be the truth.

is there anything the non authorised directors can do?

Ask ypur solicitors. These things are fact-specific. You already have lawyers advising in your dispute.
