A business director and shareholder operate in a high risk legal environment. Some of these risks are hardly visible, such as personal liability. Wijsman Advocatuur specializes in company law. The firm assists companies and business directors in solving various legal matters. Examples are: drafting and checking of contracts, debt collection and (provisional) attachments. Wijsman Advocatuur also frequently handles shareholder disputes and matters of director’s liability.
Recently Wijsman Advocatuur handled a case concerning indirect director’s liability of the ‘policy maker’. A policy maker is not a director, but acts like one. By doing so, the policy maker can be held liable for business decisions just as a director can be.
