Director & Officer Liability
Clausen Miller’s D&O Liability Practice is recognized for its excellence in providing specifically tailored legal solutions to both the insurer on the policy side, as well as to directors and/or officers on the corporate representation side for all types of liability claims involving corporate malfeasance and alleged misconduct. The Firm’s focus is to act as coverage counsel to insurers writing D&O liability insurance products in a very competitive and fluctuating landscape, especially in view of the many continuing developments raised by the enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (“SOX”). In view of the SOX Act, our attorneys have been involved with many facets of corporate governance and the requisite internal controls, which have been dramatically altered in this very regulated landscape. The Firm’s D&O practice team has a high level of expertise and experience in the areas of securities, banking, commercial litigation, ERISA and healthcare claims involving fiduciary liability issues and other related corporate claims.
Our attorneys not only act as coverage counsel, but have also been retained directly by corporate officers and directors to represent their interests in this highly complex and consistently evolving area.
Additionally, as counsel for various underwriting departments and issuers, our Firm has provided coverage opinions and acted as monitoring counsel in various class-action securities lawsuits.
