Professional and business services are companies that provide financial, real estate, administrative, waste management, insurance, accounting, engineering, and other services. Large companies in the professional business services sphere usually have a complex governing structure with high-ranking directors and officers who have responsibilities and fiduciary duties to the company.
Due to their stature and decision-making powers, directors and officers may be blamed for anything that goes wrong with the company, irrespective of whether the directors and officers actually caused or could have prevented them. When directors and officers face legal claims they often turn to their D&O Policy for a defense. We help directors and officers investigate, defend and resolve claims for insurers, or directly where insurance coverage is not triggered. We also help insurers and policy holders understand and enforce the terms of their insurance agreements.
You should partner with a law firm that understands and can navigate the complex insurance and litigation issues arising from director and officer liability.
