25 February 2014
Mayer Brown JSM Legal Update
With the new Companies Ordinance coming into force next month, what are the considerations for companies and directors when taking out Directors & Officers Liability Insurance?

It also clarifies the rules on what the company can and cannot indemnify its directors for. Some matters however still remain unclear.
