Vandeventer Black LLP has significant experience in the representation of corporate officers, directors, and board committees from a variety of public, private and closely-held businesses. This practice draws on our longstanding strengths in corporate and business law, professional liability, commercial and corporate litigation, as well as white-collar and enforcement matters. Our attorneys appreciate the importance of risk management and litigation avoidance.
Our cases have included the defense of direct and derivative claims asserting breach of fiduciary duty, corporate opportunity violations, conflict of interest matters and transactions, fraud, “deepening insolvency” and other corporate control disputes. We are also called on to counsel and represent company directors and officers in federal, state, administrative and self-regulatory enforcement actions. We have handled many of these matters as panel counsel for D&O carriers.
Our practice in this area includes counseling and advice on corporate actions and best practices, as well as indemnification policies and procedures. Our lawyers also counsel clients in their insurance procurement decision making, and audits of corporate insurance programs.
