Lightfoot defense lawyers are cool under pressure when you’re on the hot seat.
In today’s fast-paced business environment, a misstep by a director or officer can be catastrophic. In the past, the intricacies of directors’ and officers’ liability might have been considered an arcane branch of corporate law: important, but hardly newsworthy. That’s not the case anymore.
Some of today’s most sensational financial and legal news focuses on directors and officers. Private plaintiffs, bankruptcy trustees and public entities all pursue directors and officers over the decisions they make and the work they do for public companies. Experienced representation is a necessity when corporate, professional and personal reputations are on the line.
Lightfoot has many years of experience representing public and private companies, investment banks, accounting firms and law firms, as well as their respective officers, directors, employees, partners and affiliates, in both federal and state courts. Our clients include major international, national and regional companies. Our lawyers handle all types of directors’ and officers’ litigation, including recovery actions brought by trustees of bankrupt publicly traded companies.
We previously represented a founder of a healthcare services company at the height of a corporate accounting scandal as well as directors and officers at what was once the largest chain of Chevrolet dealerships in the world.
