Current Issues in D & O Liability and Insurance 2013
Thursday, Jun 13 2013

Throughout the past decade, directors and officers of corporations have faced constantly increasing liability. Venerable financial services companies have been shuttered, merged into hopefully more stable institutions, and/or taken TARP money in order to survive and/or stimulate the economy. On account of inter-connected economies in the United States, Europe and Asia, there has been a worldwide recession which still has not yielded a lasting recovery, and has spawned all kinds of litigation against directors and officers. It is clear that the financial wherewithal of corporations, and their directors, officers, employees, investors and creditors continue to be at risk. Directors and officers, and corporate liability, insurance products address these exposures and are a key component of any corporation's risk management plan. Our panel of professionals will provide their insights on present and future exposures facing directors and officers, the D&O marketplace, recent legal developments and the impact of coverage defenses on claim resolution. Topics to be discussed include: Primer on D&O Liability Exposures and Coverages; Update on Sub-Prime Litigation, Resolutions and Case Law; Special Claims/Coverage Considerations of Insureds and Insurers; The Dynamics of D&O "Towers" including Side "A" Coverage.
