Directors & Officers Litigation

When the conduct of corporate officers and directors is challenged, the operations and even reputation of a company can be compromised. Krebs Farley defends corporate directors and officers, both individually and jointly, when claims are filed against them or when they are called as defendants or witnesses in litigation.

Our highly experienced attorneys have handled matters involving corporate governance disputes, breach of fiduciary duties, bad faith and negligence, administrative actions before government regulatory agencies, securities fraud, shareholder derivative suits and insider trading. We also assist our clients in internal investigations to evaluate and identify the scope of alleged fraud and wrongdoing by employees.

In addition to representing corporations and their directors and officers, we regularly represent directors' and officers' insurance carriers in litigation based on insurance coverage disputes and fidelity claims.

In seeking to help our clients avoid costly and disruptive litigation, we provide ongoing counsel to both corporations and executive risk providers in ways to minimize their exposure in these complex, high stakes matters.
