Directors and Officers Liability
Our firm was one of the earliest firms to represent insurers of directors and officers and has been actively involved in the development and refinement of the directors and officers liability insurance policies for over thirty years. We have assisted many insurers in creating and improving their directors and officers liability policies and manuscript policies and/or endorsement wordings.
We have also assisted underwriters in connection with complex underwriting issues and due diligence issues on specified policies.
Our directors and officers liability group has collectively over 250 years of experience in D&O liability claims. We counsel primary and excess insurers in monitoring and resolving claims ranging from complex securities class actions and derivative lawsuits to employment related claims and claims against private companies and not-for profit entities. Our attorneys have successfully mediated hundreds of claims against directors and officers and against insurers. Our D&O attorneys have appeared before nearly every Federal and State Court, before the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Trade Commission and other regulatory agencies such as FINRA and state insurance departments, in connection with the resolution of director and officer liability claims.
