Corporate & ShareholderGovernance & Liability

The rules and policies by which a company is supervised and managed are often complex–and accusations of liability of or against corporate boards and leadership can be devastating without astute, knowledgeable legal guidance.

Our decades of experience inform counsel we provide to public and private entities and their executives across a variety of industries, managing disputes across a wide range of issues, including:

  • Derivative suits by shareholders against management
  • Entity-initiated lawsuits against managers, directors and officers
  • Injunction claims to enjoin wrongdoing pending litigation
  • Securities law claims
  • Indemnification rights, demands and claims by managers, directors and officers
  • Insurance policy coverage disputes with directors’ and officers’ (D&O) insurers
  • Claims subject to resolution by arbitration or judicial decision

Engaging our team means thorough, proactive corporate governance advice, as well as support through corporate governance disputes at any level of development. Clients rely on our experience drafting and litigating company indemnification rights and battling D&O insurance coverage disputes. And having served as general counsel to multiple organizations, we know the importance of keeping a pulse on internal environments with stakeholders and partners to manage potential challenges or spin-off disputes.

Communication and collaboration are essential to the efficiency of our process and our commitment to keeping clients informed as matters progress. Above all, we work to minimize unnecessary legal expenses, avoid unpleasant surprises and enable boards and executives to provide the leadership that their companies need to thrive.
