The liability of founders and directors of companies is a seriously underestimated responsibility. For example, the founder of a company can be held personally liable if the company goes bankrupt within three years of its establishment.
The untimely filing of annual accounts can also be used in order to invoke directors’ and officers’ liability. Suppliers can use this in order to sidestep the company and sue you personally.
Nowadays, directors of companies are increasingly targeted by claims from other stakeholders in the company.
