Directors and officers
Our management liability team brings together commercial awareness, experience and legal specialism to provide effective dispute resolution in a wide range of management liability claims involving directors and officers, corporate legal liability, insolvency and regulatory claims.
At Browne Jacobson our ambitious, national team of insurance practitioners represents insurers and policyholders in disputes involving the liability of directors and officers in SMEs, nonprofit entities, as well as limited and general partnerships.
We act for insurers in assessing policy response, advising on and preparing coverage opinions, as well as defending coverage actions in courts and at arbitration.
We represent directors and officers and their companies in both civil and criminal proceedings, often defending directors in shareholder disputes, directors and entities in connection regarding wrongful trading/insolvency claims, health and safety, employment, civil fraud, regulatory and environmental matters.
What sets us apart, however, is the way in which we work. We not only provide access to support underwriting and policyholders via our MLP Helpline, but also work collaboratively with you, to provide expert, industry-relevant advice in the defence of claims, whilst focusing on achieving the best outcomes for you.
