About

D&O is in the midst of major market force changes. The industry has seen record settlements, increased government investigations, skyrocketing defense costs in securities litigation, and vast expansion of multinational companies inquiring and obtaining D&O coverage. Coupled with the softening market and the ever-increasing number of claims, the D&O industry is in the midst of new and unexpected challenges. In this turbulent environment – where even the old challenges take on a new significance – it is vital that you have a complete understanding of the latest regulations, claims and strategies for accurately assessing your risks and controlling your exposures.

The American Conference Institute's publication on D&O Liability Insurance includes up to date information from key market leaders who share their knowledge on how to assess and address all the D&O challenges. International coverages, corporate bankruptcy, burgeoning enforcement areas including stock options, FCPA and others, and securities litigation will be thoroughly analyzed.
