Reger Rizzo & Darnall understands that in today’s challenging and constantly changing economic environment a company’s directors and officers are under increased scrutiny, frequently facing opposition in response to their management decisions. We have seen first-hand how disruptive claims against a company’s directors and officers can be to an organization’s operations, as well as the reputations of both the company and the individuals involved.
