Directors & Officers Liability
Contract & Employment Suits
Suits by former employees, officers and directors of a corporation have become more frequent. Some suits are based on contract disputes including claims for violation of employment or consulting agreements and breach of implied covenants. The lawyers in our Directors & Officers Liability Practice Group have successfully represented employers in resolving such contract disputes where the lawsuit was either quickly resolved or avoided altogether. Where suits are based on wrongful termination, discrimination, defamation and whistleblower claims, among others, we work collaboratively with our Employment & Labor attorneys to mount an effective and cohesive defense to these matters, and offer risk management guidance to avoid such suits in the future.
