Director and Officer Liability
In today’s business environment, corporate management’s decisions are increasingly scrutinized and challenged. Butler Snow’s attorneys handle matters involving director and officer duties, including state and federal court litigation, derivative actions, shareholder demand letters and special committee investigations. Our team’s defense of directors and officers, in both public and privately owned companies, extends to a wide array of industries.
The mainstay of the firm’s D&O liability practice focuses on issues related to closely held or family owned companies. In recent years, the growing complexity of the unique concerns of directors and officers in these entities, including tax and control issues and the avoidance of minority shareholders oppression, demand the tactical edge provided by the Butler Snow business litigation team.
