Directors and Officers Liability

The increase in litigation against directors and officers in Canada has been dramatic. Our firm is well positioned to respond to any claims made against directors and officers, whether on a coverage or defence basis, as we have for some time taken assignments from most of the leading providers of D&O coverage in Canada.

We have defended a wide variety of officers and directors for both public and private companies in cases involving both “duty to defend” and “reimbursement” policies. We have particular expertise in acting as coverage and defence counsel in respect of securities claims. We have also defended matters for “not for profit” organizations and small companies. In the continuing defence of senior management and directors in securities and other claims we have demonstrated expertise in “due diligence” defences, responded to statutory claims brought against directors and officers, and have a track record defending management confronting allegations of negligence and breach of fiduciary duty.
