Directors and Officers

In the current economic climate, the decisions made by directors and officers are second-guessed and challenged much more frequently.  This has resulted in an increase of claims of fraud and breach of fiduciary duty against decision makers by shareholders, employees, and members of associations. Klinedinst’s Directors and Officers practice group has substantial experience representing both elected and appointed directors and officers against these types of lawsuits.

Klinedinst has decades of experience in D&O litigation ranging from defense of class action investor and shareholder derivative actions to traditional breach of contract, fiduciary and commercial matters. In addition to defending commercial directors and officers, our attorneys represent non-profit organizations, such as sports associations, civic institutions, environmental groups, homeowners associations, and charitable organizations. In defending and advancing our clients’ interests, our attorneys are sensitive to the reputation and confidentiality concerns of our clients, as well the unique tactical and legal issues that arise in the defense of such claims.
