The study of the civil liability regime of the members of the supervisory bodies has not been subject to particular attention by the Portuguese legal system, although it has certain particularities in comparison with the provisions of the liability regime of managers and directors, with special emphasis to the joint liability of the members of the supervisory bodies with managers or directors, as provided for in article 81, number 2, of the Portuguese Commercial Companies Code. Therefore, this work aims to deepen the analysis of this regime of joint liability, namely its requirements of application, and relate it with the possibility of invoking exemptions from liability – by either the members of the supervisory bodies or the directors – in order to ascertain which are the possible scenarios of liability arising from the application of this provision.
