Directors and Officers Liability: Prevention, Insurance, and Indemnification
Law Journal Press, 2000 - Law - 450 pages
With liability often looming just over the horizon, corporate directors and officers rely on liability insurance and indemnification for peace of mind. Finally, there is a book that spells out in detail how these protections really work--and how they differ.
Directors and Officers Liability: Prevention, Insurance and Indemnification examines such topics as: the risks officers and directors face; derivative and class actions; when insurance is available; and when a corporation is required--or allowed--to provide indemnification. The authors have included comprehensive coverage of indemnification agreements and liability insurance policies, with point-by-point analysis of provisions, procedures, exceptions and gray areas.
