Managing a business is always challenging. Never is that fact more apparent than when someone challenges a manager’s decision in litigation. If you work as a Director or Officer of a company in litigation, you occupy a special position of both power and liability.
Our Directors and Officers Liability (D&O) team defends officers and directors in small, closely-held businesses as well as multinational corporations. We have litigated claims of alleged improper acts, omissions, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of conduct, fraud and derivative actions.
The D&O litigation team is also experienced in defending malpractice claims and other litigation that implicates professionals as defendants. Our lawyers represents D&O liability insurers, and their insured companies, directors and officers, in defense of claims involving breaches of fiduciary duties and claims arising under employment, environmental and securities laws.
