Commercial rights and duties

The law imposes various obligations upon businesses today. No longer can a business pursue purely financial objectives – they must also consider the environment in which they operate, their consumers, their shareholder and other stakeholders. The Companies Act 2006 now imposes various regulatory requirements upon businesses, and codifies common law principles such as directors' duties.

In this section we outline some of the regulatory requirements that your business should be aware of and how you can ensure compliance.
