DIRECTORS, OFFICERS AND MANAGEMENT LIABILITY
Directors and Officers are often subject to a variety of claims arising from difficult and novel decisions they undertake in their roles within an organization or association. These decisions underscore the myriad risks that directors, officers and managers may encounter on a daily basis and can, at times, result in large consequences. While some claims result in investigations, other claims, particularly concerning shareholder and employment issues, commonly result in litigation against directors and officers of large and small companies, whether corporations, partnerships or limited liability companies. Accusations against directors, officers and managers not only have the potential to cause harm to the individuals involved, but the company as well, putting brand, reputation, profits and customers at risk.
