In this podcast, Scott Meyer and Carol Zacharias will examine the implications of bankruptcy for directors and officers. They will discuss the rise in bankruptcy filings and describe the bankruptcy process and the roles of participants. They will also illuminate directors and officers’ liability and key coverage concerns. And, they will propose best practices, with regard to quality insurance protection. Finally, they will talk about the impact of the global recession – which – spawned by the subprime mortgage and credit crisis in the United States – fostered a steep rise in the number of personal and business bankruptcy filings in 2009. They will additionally discuss the varied collective action rules, punitive damages, indemnification uncertainties, and litigation certainty – along with insurance and risk management considerations.
