Corporate misfeasance both in the United States and Canada has resulted in significant legislative and judicial responses aimed squarely at the conduct of corporate directors and officers. This has highlighted the importance and need for directors’ and officers’ insurance and for understanding this seemingly complex area of regulation and liability. This course will provide an overview of the duties of directors and officers, the exposures facing them, the nature and scope of the coverage afforded by a directors’ and officers’ liability policy and the related insurance issues.

Topics include:

    • Composition of the board and duties of directors
    • Standard of care and liabilities of directors and officers and related case laws
    • Defenses available to directors and officers
    • Idemnification and insurance issues
    • Key terms and concepts in the directors’ and officers’ insurance policy
    • Significant exclusions in the directors’ and officers’ insurance policy
