Companies, whether public or private and the decision makers within them, are susceptible to a host of Director & Officer (D&O) exposures. Our team of D & O attorneys has an outstanding reputation both in the boardroom and in the courtroom. D & O matters are on the rise, particularly in the areas of finance, as regulatory and governmental agencies meticulously oversee their respective industries.

We work closely with our clients and create proactive plans that guide day-to-day operations to protect company leaders against personal liabilities. Should disputes arise, we strive to resolve them without the necessity of litigation. However, our team of D&O attorneys is well-equipped to defend our clients’ interests from start to finish.

We have represented directors and officers in a wide variety of disputes from alleged wrongful failure to renew a loan to failure to properly monitor company investments.
