Abstract

The debate surrounding the interaction between directors' duties and stakeholder interests has traditionally centred around the duty to act in good faith in the interests of the company. However, stakeholder interests are becoming increasingly relevant in relation to the duty of care. This was highlighted in a judgment of Edelman J in the Federal Court of Australia.
