Directors and Officers

Our attorneys manage high-profile, high-stakes directors and officers (D&O) litigation and assist clients in preventing, mitigating and defending risk in today’s highly competitive economic environment. We are regularly involved in all types of D&O claims – many of the largest in the country – including securities and ERISA class actions, shareholder derivative actions, deepening insolvency and bankruptcy matters, regulatory and criminal proceedings and complex business disputes.

Our experience includes counseling, mediation and litigation. We often collaborate with clients regarding insurance risk analysis, indemnification arrangements, purchase of insurance underwriting issues and policy drafting. We advise key personnel on obligations and risks associated with serving as a director and/or officer including fiduciary responsibilities, disclosure issues and relationships with bankers and analysts. We also have considerable experience with program administration.

Our attorneys regularly author D&O liability and insurance articles for business publications and law journals. We present before professional groups in the U.S. and internationally. Our attorneys have served in leadership positions in such professional associations as the Professional Liability Underwriting Society, the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors and the Society of Financial Services Professionals.
