Join our panel of governance and litigation experts for their thoughts and advice on how to address current issues regarding officer and director indemnification and advancement of attorney’s fees.  Our panel will discuss issues such as:

  • The current parameters of mandatory and permissive officer and director indemnification under Delaware and New York law
  • What remedies are available to a company to recoup attorneys’ fees advanced to an officer or director who is later determined to be not entitled to indemnification?
  • To what extent can a company receive repayment of attorneys’ fees as restitution after a criminal conviction of an officer or director?
  • What is the insurer’s obligation to advance costs and fees associated with a company’s internal investigation?
