What is a Director’s Service Agreement?

A director’s service agreement is a legally binding contract between a company and an individual who is appointed as director of that company. The agreement sets out the terms and conditions of the director’s appointment, outlining their duties, rights, responsibilities and obligations.


Why are they important?

Directors have specific duties towards a company and its shareholders, in general and under legislation such as the Companies Act 2006. A well-drafted agreement helps to ensure that the director understands and complies with these obligations, helping to promote good corporate governance practices. The agreement will also seek to protect the company’s interests including confidentiality, intellectual property and non-compete obligations.

What people say about us

We were recommended to use Poole Alcock and in particular, Monisha by our neighbours, who found her to be very approachable.

Throughout our relationship, from the initial meeting through to completion, the communications were always first class and easily understood. Monisha was knowledgeable in the subject we approached her with and was quickly able to conclude the documentation and business we had.

I would not hesitate to recommend Poole Alcock, and Monisha herself, if asked.
