Executives in corporations and financial firms are on the hot seat as never before in the wake of scandals that have infuriated investors and the public at large.
PLI’s Directors’ and Officers’ Liability has never been more necessary, providing executives and their legal counsel with the guidance needed to minimize the legal exposure of corporate heads and help them meet the professional performance expectations of demanding shareholders.
Directors’ and Officers’ Liability shows you how top managers can satisfy duties of care, loyalty, good faith, and disclosure (and avoid charges of negligence and conflict of interest, among others); meet certification, due diligence and director independence requirements; follow best professional practices advocated by leading U.S. business groups; successfully use various legal defenses when they are charged with violations; take advantage of "safe harbor" statutes that lessen their legal exposure; and protect themselves through contractual indemnification and D&O insurance.
Updated at least once a year, Directors’ and Officers’ Liability is a vital reference for executives, managers, and legal counsel in corporations, financial firms, and business associations, as well as federal and state regulators.
