Director & Officers

Whether it’s private or publicly traded companies, litigation made against Directors & Officers, or “D&O,” requires a unique skillset that leverages expertise in a full range of business operations.

Whether it’s private or publicly traded companies, litigation against directors and officers, or “D&O” requires a unique skill set that leverages expertise in a full range of business operations. We have wide-ranging trial experience in all types of litigation involving the duties and responsibilities of directors and officers, including derivative suits, creditor or trustee claims in bankruptcy, shareholder demand letters, and special committee investigations. We apply that experience in both state and federal court.

With the evolution and growth of risk scenarios addressed by D&O insurance, the implications for coverage have similarly become more intricate. The stakes are high for companies, their insurers, and directors and officers who depend on these policies to shield both their fiscal and reputational assets.

Our Coverage attorneys have an established track record in representing primary, excess, and “Side A” insurance providers concerning D&O policy claims, many of which we’ve had a hand in designing. We are adept at overseeing claims, concentrating on the litigation of foundational cases, strategy evaluation, damage assessment, and claims settlement. Furthermore, we offer expert advice when issues escalate to class-action lawsuits or are intertwined with criminal probes or trials.

Consistent with all our coverage specializations, our primary aim is to address issues promptly and in a cost-conscious manner, frequently employing mediation or other ADR techniques.
