Directors and Officers

Our attorneys handle, mediate and litigate high-profile, high-stakes directors and officers (D&O) matters, including securities and ERISA class actions, shareholder derivative actions, deepening insolvency and bankruptcy matters, regulatory and criminal proceedings, commercial tort litigation and complex business disputes. We are regularly involved on behalf of domestic and international insurers in the largest D&O claims in the country and we also have significant experience with private companies, and not-for-profit entities.

Walker Wilcox attorneys assist clients in preventing, mitigating, defending and resolving exposure in today’s highly-competitive economic environment. We collaborate with clients regarding insurance risk analysis, indemnification arrangements, purchase of insurance, underwriting issues and policy drafting. We also advise key personnel on obligations and risks associated with serving as a director and/or officers including fiduciary responsibilities, disclosure issues and relationships with bankers and analysts.

Walker Wilcox attorneys regularly author D&O liability and insurance articles for business publications and law journals, as well as present to professional groups in the U.S. and internationally. Several of our attorneys have served in leadership positions with the Professional Liability Underwriting Society, the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors and the Society of Financial Services Professionals.
