Directors and Officers Liability
JPK provides representation to members and officers of for-profit corporation and or nonprofit organization. We can help to ensure that the organization’s fiduciary requirements are met, as well as defending challenges to an individual’s or board’s decision. Actions against a director or officer can often involve claims of mishandling funds, failing to act for the benefit of shareholders and neglect of responsibilities by failing to conduct proper oversight. An individual’s responsibilities as an officer or a member of a board of directors subject them to greater risk and liability. While directors have broad discretion and authority with respect to decisions made in the course of their work, that authority is not unlimited. Challenges to these rulings can often result in costly and complex litigation, necessitating the services of qualified defense counsel who are both experienced in addressing these issues and have a solid trial track record.
