Directors and officers litigation


Directors and officers – in both nonprofit and for profit industries – serve in complex and challenging roles. You are often overseeing large sums of money, and questions inevitably arise related to misconduct, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, antitrust and employment issues. These kind of allegations can have a substantial impact – which is why our attorneys focus on developing a practical, thoughtful and cost-effective approach for your defense.

Our directors and officers litigation team frequently works with professional liability insurers to defend you against claims. When disputes arise, we first strive to avoid litigation by facilitating a resolution to the issues. If litigation is unavoidable, we utilize our experience and knowledge to handle your case in the most proficient manner to achieve a good result.
