Leading with Clarity

Directors’ Services Contracts

In the intricate world of corporate governance, the role of a director is paramount. Their decisions shape the company's trajectory, impact shareholders, and resonate through the workforce. Thus, delineating the responsibilities, rights, and remunerations of a director becomes essential. Directors’ Services Contracts serve this purpose. At Resolve Solicitors, we specialize in crafting these contracts, ensuring clarity, compliance, and a constructive alignment of interests.


Given the significance of a director's role, a clear contract helps prevent disputes, ensures aligned expectations, and protects both the director and the company.

While they might have legal standing, written contracts are recommended due to the complexities and high stakes associated with director roles.

Yes, many contracts include performance-linked bonuses or stock options to align the director's interests with the company's success.

Breach consequences, such as warnings, penalties, or termination, are typically specified in the contract, varying based on the nature and severity of the breach.

Embedding a code of conduct within the contract and instituting regular ethics training can be instrumental.

While often included in contracts, the enforceability of non-compete clauses varies by jurisdiction and the clause's reasonability in duration and scope.

The terms for termination, whether for cause or otherwise, should be clearly stated in the contract to ensure transparency and fairness.

Directors are usually mandated to disclose potential conflicts of interest, with the contract specifying actions to be taken upon such disclosures.

Periodic reviews, especially during role changes, corporate restructuring, or regulatory shifts, are recommended.
