IN FOCUS: The Changing Landscape of Director & Officer Liability

The presentation featured Victoria Tidwell, Vice President, Legal Affairs for Cypress Semiconductor Corporation, Rich Morvillo, partner at Mayer Brown and a former Branch Chief with the Securities and Exchange Commission's Division of Enforcement, and Lee Rubin, partner at Mayer Brown and a former Assistant United States Attorney with the US Attorney's Office in Washington, DC, discussing various director and officer liability issues, including:

  • Various settings in which officers and directors might face exposure to liability if certain duties are breached
  • Navigating the treacherous waters of regulatory compliance, including the threat of an officer/director bar order
  • Obligations of majority shareholders to minority shareholders, including duty of candor and disclosure
  • In-house counsel perspective on insurance coverage and internal counseling
