Founding Partner and Firm-Wide Litigation Chair at Pittsburgh, PA
Cipriani & Werner, P.C.'s D&O Liability Practice Group represents our insurance clients and their insureds in a wide-range of matters arising under claims triggering coverage under D&O insurance policies.
D&O claims may take various forms depending on whether they relate to duties to the corporation, employees, competitors, customers or the public. The coverage itself will also vary depending on whether the insured corporation has indemnification requirements in favor of their officers and directors. Regardless of whether claims arise due to the failure of officers or directors to meet contractual or measurable standards of performance guided largely by the business judgment rule, claims of negligence, mismanagement or self-dealing actions by officers or directors, and various financing (debt and equity) and shareholder related matters, our experienced attorneys are prepared to vigorously defend our clients.
Cipriani & Werner attorneys are licensed to practice in numerous jurisdictions and have experience in Directors and Officers liability litigation in state and federal courts. Our seasoned team of professionals have the skills and knowledge required to handle liability matters.
C&W attorneys defend clients in a variety of complex D&O liability cases.
In every case a C&W attorney handles, we work to promptly and accurately evaluate legal matters to evaluate risk of liability and develop a strong case for defense of our client. We understand how accusations and litigation can disrupt and interfere with business operations and profitability and we always strive to bring these matters to a favorable conclusion for our clients.
