With the volatility of the modern economic environment, directors and officers (D&O) liability in corporate governance is an increasingly relevant area of insurance. The lawyers at McLennan Ross help insurers assess and evaluate claims and resolve disputes in the most efficient and practical manner possible.
The best plan is proactive.
We defend insurers in litigation, arbitration, and mediation in a range of matters, including negligence or fraudulent misrepresentation and disclosure, deceptive market practices, breach of trust or fiduciary duty, oppression and derivative proceedings, insolvency, mismanagement, federal and provincial statutory liabilities, and violation of securities laws.
We help insurers manage risk with innovative and creative solutions to avoid disputes and review and analyze D&O liability insurance and related lines of coverage. Our lawyers represent insurers in lawsuits and regulatory investigations involving directors and officers of public and private companies. We manage litigation, regulatory investigations and enforcement actions and act as monitoring counsel for insurers.
Our D&O practice also defends directors who have been sued for employment issues, failed businesses and where the company is closely held. We provide assessments and opinions on insurance coverage, proactive monitoring, including class actions, assessments of coverage entitlements and exposure, and drafting or modifying of existing policies. We keep our clients informed and up-to-date with any current information that is relevant to their interests.
We get results.
Whether in mediation, arbitration, or litigation, our skilled lawyers focus on results and strive to resolve conflicts in an efficient and cost-effective manner. We have handled complex D&O defence litigation before federal and provincial courts at all levels of the judicial system.
