Presented by the McCarthy Tétrault Advance™ program, this training session was held on Wednesday February 16, 2011 in Montréal.

In this conference, our speakers reviewed the different sources of directors’ liability. The duties and obligations laid down by various laws were reviewed, as will relevant legal judgments. This review included comments and practical advice for limiting the liability of directors and providing a better defence in the event of litigation. Also, they briefly discussed sources of indemnification that should be considered so as to maximize protection of the personal patrimony of the directors.
