Fields Howell attorneys actively counsel domestic and international insurers in respect to Directors & Officers coverages. Our experience includes cases involving corporate, securities, employment, and financial institution disputes against individual directors and officers and claims for entity coverage. Our experience with complex litigation makes us uniquely suited to address all types of D&O disputes that arise.
We have also been retained to defend complex D&O claims. In a recent matter, we served as lead defense counsel in a $10 million bond issuance dispute, obtaining summary judgment for our client and being awarded $100,000 in attorneys’ fees from the plaintiff. That decision was then affirmed by the Court of Appeals.
