New risks are arising for directors and officers as new legislation and regulations proliferate in the wake of Enron and Worldcom. Ontario has passed major changes to its Securities Act. Sarbanes-Oxley has set new standards in the U.S. which are being used by many insurers in Canada to evaluate risk in relation to directors' and officers' liability insurance.

Penalties and damage awards against directors and officers are large — and growing. Consequently, the cost of directors' and officers' liability insurance is skyrocketing. Senior executives, insurers and their advisors need to know how to reduce risk and manage insurance costs. When claims arise, all parties need to know how to settle disputes before the costs of court hearings are incurred.

This Canadian Institute conference is designed to bring you the very latest critical information and practical advice on directors' and officers' liability. Top lawyers and insurance experts will cover:
* A complete guide to new legislation and regulations that affect directors' and officers' liability
* The latest trends in claims activity
* Update on class actions in Canada and the U.S.
* Liability of directors and officers on bankruptcy
* Financial controls that are essential for risk management
And much, much more.
