Director & Officer Liability

Reid Collins brings claims against directors and officers for conduct ranging from negligent breaches of fiduciary duty to intentional fraud. We have litigated over a billion dollars in D&O claims in courts across the country, obtaining judgments and favorable settlements for our clients.

Our deep experience navigating D&O litigation allows us to put our clients in the best position to recover losses caused by the failures of corporate leadership. From the outset of each case, we focus on how to establish the most favorable standards and burdens of proof to govern our client’s lawsuit and how to avoid common defenses like the business judgment rule and exculpatory clauses in the governing corporate documents.

Our core tenet at Reid Collins is pragmatism – we focus only on what is the most practical way to achieve each client’s goals. In our D&O Liability practice, this means we recognize the reality that the company’s errors and omission insurance may be the only collectible source of recovery for our clients. And so, not only do we focus on developing claims that can succeed at trial, but, from the start, we are also mindful of putting our clients’ claims in the best position to be covered by defendants’ insurance.
