Claims against directors and officers have dramatically increased in recent years. Company leaders are more frequently challenged with providing governance on issues involving matters such as mergers and acquisitions, public offerings, and other sophisticated transactions. Anytime a valuation is made, a company’s leadership may be second-guessed by shareholders or creditors. Lawsuits against directors and officers are often brought by investors, employees, regulatory agencies and customers alleging financial loss caused by decisions made by a company’s directors and officers.
The litany of potential risks for directors and officers also includes matters of day-to-day governance of the company. Such risks include claims from parties with whom the company has contracted or even with whom the company discussed a contractual relationship; claims for patent, trademark and copyright infringement; claims by employees of wrongful termination, discrimination, and harassment; and claims by governmental agencies of environmental contamination.
