D&O insurance coverage is critical to the health of most organizations because it allows directors and officers to sleep better at night knowing that they can serve the company and its shareholders with less concern that their personal assets are at risk from liabilities associated with performance of their fiduciary duties. Similarly, transactional risks can also be insured as a means of protecting against breaches of representations and warranties, contingent liabilities, and other transactional risks while allowing the parties to the deal to sleep at night knowing that their investment is protected. Lathrop GPM Insurance Recovery & Counseling attorneys will explain what decision-makers and inhouse counsel need to know, explaining what is insured, key definitions, common exclusions and how to avoid pitfalls when making D&O and transactional insurance claims.
- Understanding Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance (25 minutes)
- Transactional Insurance: What it is, why you may need it, and how to avoid pitfalls in the claim process (25 minutes)
- Questions and Answers (10 minutes)
We encourage members to invite an associate or colleague that may be interested in joining the ACC Mid-America Chapter. The Association of Corporate Counsel offers numerous benefits and resources to in-house counsel including CLE offerings and networking opportunities and we look forward to sharing that information with others in the field.
