Representing Clients With Challenges Involving Directors And Officers

For many years, Sanders & Parks' attorneys have helped the insurance industry and its clients respond to the challenges arising out of claims involving directors and officers. D&O liability represents a unique and complex practice area which requires special consideration and handling. Drawing on the experience and talents of its attorneys, the Firm has the diverse expertise needed to provide excellent service for its clients.

Sanders & Parks is uniquely situated to act on behalf of the insurers of businesses, financial institutions and other professionals. Insurers rely on our expertise in handling claims submitted under the many insurance products that are available to professionals, routinely calling upon our attorneys to serve as coverage, monitoring, and litigation counsel.

Sanders & Parks has represented and continues to represent D&O insurers who service a large portion of the marketplace. In addition to acting as supervisory or monitoring counsel, we undertake litigation assignments where coverage disputes between a D&O insurer and its insureds cannot be amicably resolved.

As a firm, we have successfully litigated numerous D&O coverage actions on behalf of many different insurers. We have also litigated issues such as the "Insured v. Insured" exclusion, corporate indemnification, dishonesty, disgorgement of profit, and other issues that may arise in D&O litigated matters.

For many insurers, Sanders & Parks is the "go to" firm when a complex insurance dispute involving directors and officers' liability must be brought to trial. When the need arises, Sanders & Parks' attorneys know how to litigate - and to try - cases. The Firm routinely represents insurers at arbitrations, at federal and state court trials, and in appellate matters.
