Director's Wilful Neglect or Default and Vicarious Liability

[Dynamic date]

22 May 2020

In Goodman v DMS Governance Ltd the Cayman Islands Court of Appeal recently considered the distinction between mere negligence and wilful neglect or default arising from a director's breach of duty. The Court of Appeal also considered whether an employer is liable for the actions of an employee who has been appointed as a director of another company and acts in breach of duty as a director.
