Corporate stakeholders are scrutinizing business operations and demanding accountability for poor financial results and corporate wrongdoings. Ensure that you have the most relevant information and strategies available to protect directors and officers against crippling personal consequences!

Directors’ and officers’ duties and exposures to liability continue to be of serious concern, and corporate executives are increasingly in the public spotlight as the challenges faced by the economy over the past few months have revealed the fragility of corporate balance sheets. Meanwhile, directors, officers, and other fiduciaries are increasingly exposed to class actions litigation and pension fund liabilities, and the Livent prosecution may have potentially opened the floodgates for the investigation and prosecution of directors and officers. Further, despite apparent comfort from the Supreme Court in BCE that business judgment will be respected, there is uncertainty as to whether the decision could have gone the other way under different circumstances.

At The Canadian Institute’s 12th Annual National Forum on Directors’, Officers’, and Fiduciaries’ Liability, our outstanding speaker faculty will provide you with the legal updates, insurance developments, key strategies, and best practices you need to know to avoid or mitigate exposures, including:

DISCOVERING key trends in director and officer exposures to liability in North America
ANTICIPATING the depth of regulatory investigations in both fraud and non-fraud cases
OBTAINING valuable practical advice from leading in-house counsel on managing D&O exposures
EVALUATING how insurance policies are responding to claims arising on insolvency or restructuring
IDENTIFYING changes in insurance policies and new products to reflect the economic climate
And much more!
