Director and Officer Liability Committee


Message From The Chair, Lewis Lazarus




Our committee has been active since we last met. Ongoing projects include planning, under Jim Wing's leadership, a CLE-eligible program at the Business Law Section's Spring meeting in Los Angeles, sending out alerts of recent cases and other developments, updating our checklist for D&O insurance and publishing this newsletter. A podcast on the attorney-client privilege as it relates to directors and officers is also in the works.



Our committee will meet in Los Angeles from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. on Friday, April 11, 2014 in Plaza 3, Third level, at the JW Marriott Hotel.



Our CLE, which is co-sponsored by the Business and Corporate Litigation, Corporate Governance and Private Equity and Venture Capital Committees, is scheduled for 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 12 in the Gold Ballroom, Salon 1, First Level, of the JW Marriott. Perhaps due to this level of activity and content-generation, I am pleased to report that our committee is one of the fastest-growing committees of the Business Law Section.



Thanks once again to our subcommittee chairs -- Frances Goins, Michaela Sozio and James Wing -- and the newsletter committee of Frances, Michaela and Corinne Amato, for their efforts in in keeping you up to date on topics relevant to director and officer liability.



I look forward to seeing you in Los Angeles.
