Read the Article titled Attribution in Company Law’. Identify some of the concerns raised in the article in relation to the law concerning attribution. Critically discuss the writers view that ‘to attribute the fraud of the sole director and shareholder, or the directing mind and will, to the company in order to bar the latter from suing third parties for breach of duties on the basis of ex turpi causa, would in effect amount to lifting the corporate veil and treating the company as if it were the director/shareholder himself who is attempting to rebut the ex turpi causa defence’. Give reasons for your answer.
