Under rule 9 of section 1 to Part A which lays down the standards of etiquette and professional ethics for a lawyer, framed by Bar Council of India, a lawyer shall not hold brief for a company in which he is a director.

This rule does not apply to a member appearing as ??amicus curiae? or without a fee on behalf of the Bar Council, Incorporated Law Society or a Bar Association, in the present case since you are a director of company you cannot appear as its counsel .
