At the core of our professional lines/ financial lines practice is Directors’ and Officers’ Liability Insurance, which draws on the support of our colleagues in the White Collar Defense group. Many of them are former State or Federal prosecutors with decades of experience in regulatory enforcement. Whether in connection with D&O coverage claims or in defense of the underlying action against board and management, our lawyers regularly represent participants in securities and derivative actions brought by shareholders, creditors, or policyholders. We also host an annual seminar in New York on developments in International Directors and Officers Insurance with a panel drawn from leading insurers and reinsurers.
