Liability of directors and board members in corporate groups
Switzerland | 14 December 2020

In practice, most large companies are structured as corporate groups. Corporate groups are recognised and in certain areas regulated by Swiss law (eg, accounting). However, there is little case law discussing the characteristics of corporate groups, particularly the liability of group executives. In a recent decision in the context of the collapse of the Swissair Group in 2001, the Federal Supreme Court commented on the liability of directors and board members in corporate groups.
