On 19 May, an article from Hall & Wilcox reflected on a recent High Court case. It explains that to be considered a shadow director of a company, the directors of that company (acting as a board) must be ‘accustomed to act’ in accordance with that person’s instructions or wishes. It then explains that, although a corporation or other body corporate cannot formally be appointed to the position of a director, a company can be a shadow director of another company. The article says that it is important for companies (and individuals) to be aware of their relationship with, and influence over, the board of a company, and understand the risk of being deemed to be a director of that company and, among other things, a shadow director may be liable for insolvent trading of a company.
