D&O Liability Insurance

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

Tuesday, September 30 to Wednesday, October 01, 2014
The Carlton Hotel, New York, NY

Now led by government speakers from the SEC, U.S. Attorney’s Offices and state securities commissions, 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 and enforcement action, and market conditions in today’s tumultuous environment.

ATTENTION D&O PROFESSIONAL: With a rise in the types of suits implicating D&O coverage, new and broader scopes of coverage, a continued emphasis on Side A coverage, increased SEC/DOJ activity and more, the dynamics have changed. 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. That is why you cannot afford to miss American Conference Institute’s 18th D&O Liability Summit.
