Directors and Officers Insurance Recovery


Disappointed investors or employees sue corporations and their directors and officers for tumbling stock prices or employment-related claims with more frequency.  Insurance companies sell more complex insurance products to defray their risk associated with these lawsuits.  Anderson Kill, named by Chambers USA as one of the nation’s top law firms nationally for insurance dispute resolution, represents D&O policyholders in disputes with insurance companies.

Our comprehensive experience upholding and advancing policyholders’ rights in D&O insurance coverage includes A-Side Coverage and B-Side Coverage, Employment Practices Liability, and Entity Securities Coverage.  We have faced the complex disputes involving contentious issues such as right to select counsel and defense costs, definition of claim and loss, punitive or exemplary damages, and the litany of exclusions. We handle claims in bankruptcy proceedings.  We address allocation issues in addition to the many other issues raised by insurance companies and faced by directors and officers in insurance disputes.

Anderson Kill knows insurance coverage inside and out. We put our far-reaching experience and thorough historical database of knowledge to work for our clients with incisive scrutiny. Our approach is to analyze our clients’ case and put a tailored strategy before the court.
