Within the scope of our general business litigation practice, Boles Holmes White has professional liability attorneys that focus more specifically director and officer liability. Claims involving director and officer liability can range from general premises liability claims to more complex allegations of breaches of a fiduciary duty to a corporation’s shareholders. Additionally, director and officer liability is not limited to large corporations. Smaller, self-governing boards, government officials, and non-profit organizations, to name a few, are examples of entities that may face liability issues.
Another factor that may add to the complexity of a claim is how it is initiated. Director and officer suits may be initiated by governmental agencies, shareholders, legislative committees, etc. Not only do our attorneys have extensive backgrounds in business litigation, we regularly deal with government agencies, allowing us to better represent our clients in a director and officer liability action. This experience frequently leads to a prompt and favorable resolution for our clients.
