Our attorneys regularly represent corporate directors and officers in litigation arising from their service on corporate boards or in connection with their management responsibilities.
In this practice area, we have two distinctive attributes that make our work in this area unique.
First, by virtue of our longstanding expertise and reputation in the corporate arena, we have deep experience in the areas of corporate formation, governance and risk management. In this regard, our attorneys have literally written the key book in this area – the authoritative treatise Counseling California Corporations which has been published annually by Continuing Education of the Bar. Our attorneys who are called upon to represent corporate directors and officers therefore have the distinctive advantage of being able to leverage this built-up expertise in the corporate arena in connection with representing corporate officers and directors in liability matters.
Second, our attorneys also have expertise in the area of insurance coverage and recovery. As liability matters against corporate insiders are frequently covered under Directors’ and Officer’s and other forms of liability insurance, our expertise in coverage matters gives us another distinctive advantage – the ability to cut through coverage issues and thereby obtain the best possible result for our clients from a cost and recovery perspective.
