26 Jun 2018

In the recent case of PT Sandipala Arthaputra v STMicroelectronics Asia Pacific Pte Ltd [2018] SGCA 17, the Court of Appeal clarified the extent of a director’s liability for his company’s breach of contract. The Court of Appeal held that a director is exempt from personal liability for his company’s breaches of contract, if he acted in his capacity as a director of the company, without being in breach of duties owed to his company.
