Shielding Companies from Officer and Director Liability
Prior to the early 2000’s, there was little legal separation between corporations and their officers and directors even though their actions or decisions often impacted the corporation without resulting in their personal liability. That changed after certain high-profile cases involving fraud and wrongdoing by executives of major corporations, and companies must now protect themselves against liability if their leaders commit wrongdoing even though the distinctions between corporate and personal actions may be blurry at times.
At Del Sole Cavanaugh Stroyd LLC our experienced corporate lawyers vigorously defend companies against fallout from director and officer liability. We represent corporations when charges are levied against officers and directors as well as claims that are brought by shareholders, owners and minority owners alleging:
- Breach of fiduciary duty
Our goal is to ensure that the corporation is not liable for bad actions of executives who shirked their responsibility, abused their power or engaged in self-enrichment. Our attorneys will work hard to keep your company financially stable and viable during such difficult times.
The sooner we are brought in to manage a crisis, the more effective we can be. It is in your best interests to contact us as soon as you become aware of a possible problem.
