Fiduciary Duties: Directors and Employees by Stuart Ritchie QC & Andrew Stafford QC – New Edition
Fiduciary Duties: Directors and Employees by Stuart Ritchie QC
and Andrew Stafford QC draws together in one volume the developing and complex law relating to fiduciary duties in this context and analyses both its historical origins and its modern application by the Courts.
Reviews of the previous edition of this book included:
“Chapter 2 (Fiduciary Duties) ought to be required reading for company lawyers; employment lawyers will devour Chapters 3 (Employees Owing Fiduciary Duties) and 4 (Contractual Issues); and both sets will benefit from Chapter 5 (Unlawful Competition) … how rare it is to find commentary on the Companies Act 2006 that is almost pure analysis!”- Solicitors Journal
There have been numerous important appellate decisions since the first edition, on shadow and de facto directors, the test for employee fiduciary duties, remedies, including Supreme Court decisions on bribes and equitable compensation, attribution and imputation of knowledge and vicarious liability, limitation and accessory liability. The text also contains additional analysis of commonwealth authority and the approach to other ad hoc fiduciary relationships including LLP members.
