Revival of Salomon in Tortious Liability

Image
One begins to wonder if the Court in the case of Salomon v Salomon [1897] A.C.22 ever envisaged that a principle derived from the case law in 1897 was continue to be litigated with such furore in 2014. The principle in Salomon sought to keep companies as separate legal entities which personalities that are distinct from their owners and controllers. The advantage here being that companies would not be liable for the debts of their shareholders and management and, in the reverse, shareholders and management would not be liable for the debts of the company.

However, to coin a often-quoted phrase, “with great power comes great responsibility”. Company directors are under a catalogue of duties, as detailed in Part 10 of the Companies Act 2006, and these are often conflicting and vague. Equally, provisions in the Insolvency Act 1986 and the dangers of lifting the corporate veil for ills conducted by shareholder-directors can both add to the dangers of the job.
