Director & Officer Liability

The commercial litigation team at Lowis & Gellen has extensive experience representing corporate officers and directors in nearly every type of claim they could potentially face, including claims related to corporate governance disputes, corporate malfeasance, bad faith, breach of fiduciary duty or duty of loyalty, negligence, piercing the corporate veil and administrative actions. We have substantial practical knowledge of how claims are litigated against directors and officers, as well as the experience and proven abilities to develop and implement strategies for the successful defense and resolution of those claims. Our clients come from a broad range of businesses, from publicly held corporations to smaller private entities, and from a number of different industries.

Investigations & Business Counseling

The firm also advises directors and officers on liability issues as well as an array of corporate governance issues, including preparing corporate resolutions, maintaining corporate books and finances and developing voting and other protocol procedures. In addition, we frequently advise and assist clients in internal corporate investigations for boards and committees regarding alleged fraud and wrongdoing by corporate employees.

Insurance

We regularly work with companies and their officers and directors, in seeking and securing appropriate, comprehensive and cost-effective insurance for integrated risk coverage, and making referrals as needed to connect our clients to the risk management resources they need.

We pride ourselves on servicing the needs of each client, as a whole, with a commitment to excellence.
