Being held personally liable for a business-related decision is the nightmare of every company manager, officer and director. Business Liability Insurance Answer Book provides a concise roadmap to the kinds of issues being litigated, and the types of liability insurance available to protect against suit and cover losses in the event of a successful recovery.

This book examines the claims that pose the greatest risk of liability for directors and officers, such as:

  • derivative actions for breaches of a director’s or officer’s duty of care or loyalty to the corporation;
  • securities fraud shareholder class action lawsuits;
  • ERISA class actions;
  • regula­tory investigations and enforcement actions; and
  • DOJ investiga­tions and indictments.
Written in a clear and direct question-and-answer format, Business Liability Insurance Answer Book will be of interest to lawyers and other legal professionals, as well as the corporate managers, officers, directors and other employees whose liability this type of insurance protects against.
