Directors and Officers Liability
KCESD represents insurers’ interests in claims against corporate insureds and their directors and officers’ liability coverage. We handle directors and officers’ liability coverage and defense issues involving publicly and privately held corporations and nonprofit organizations. These claims range from commercial disputes to employment practices claims to shareholder class actions, often involving financial institutions, other commercial entities, or nonprofit organizations.
We investigate the underlying circumstances in the claim, which frequently involve sophisticated commercial transactions, and analyze complex issues of insurance law to provide coverage opinions to our insurance clients. In addition, we work closely with local defense counsel to achieve the best possible result in the underlying litigation.
We also represent insurers in coverage litigation concerning the interpretation or application of directors and officers’ liability policies. KCESD has also drafted policy wordings and endorsements for our clients with respect to directors and officers’ liability.
