American Conference Institute's 19th Forum on

D & O Liability Insurance

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

Thursday, September 17 to Friday, September 18, 2015
The Carlton Hotel, New York, NY

ACI’s D&O Liability forum continues to stand out as the premier event for leading brokers, underwriters, claims professionals and attorneys to benchmark coverage, underwriting, and claims strategies. No other event can match the practical and detailed analysis of the entire D&O landscape, including the impact of litigation, regulatory action, and market conditions in today’s tumultuous environment.

ATTENTION D&O PROFESSIONAL: The dynamics have changed in the industry, with: recent activity in Delaware regarding forum selection and restraints on litigation; cyber and its impact on D&O insurance; new issues surrounding private equity companies, hedge funds, and privately owned companies; shareholder derivative action suits; M&A litigation and its impact on coverage, 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.
