Director and Officer Liability: A Focus on Creditor Issues


Gain a thorough understanding of common claims made against directors and officers and strategies for defending those claims.

Mismanagement of a corporation by officers and directors can have a direct impact on a creditor's rights and ability to recover against a corporate debtor. This topic will help individuals conducting business with corporations understand the fiduciary duties of officers and directors. The speakers will explore the standard of liability of officers and directors, key defenses and protection. The speakers will provide insight for pursuing potential personal liability actions in state and bankruptcy court. Creditors will want to attend if they are dealing with a bankrupt debtor seeking recovery directly from officers and directors over breach of fiduciary duties.
