American Conference Institute’s 17th Forum on

D&O Liability

Coverage, Underwriting, and Claims Strategies for Managing Liability Risks Through Market Changes and Increased Scrutiny

Monday, October 21 to Tuesday, October 22, 2013
The Carlton Hotel, New York, NY
ATTENTION D&O PROFESSIONAL:  The dynamics have changed, with a rise in the types of suits implicating D&O coverage (derivative suits, M&A), new, and broader scopes of coverage, a continued emphasis on Side A coverage, increased SEC/DOJ activity and more. It is thus imperative that the players involved understand the key areas which expose directors & officers to liability and the obligations which arise under D&O policies, whether representing the insurer or the insured.
