Practice Areas Litigation Officer & Director Liability

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. Regardless of whether the best resolution is to settle out of court or pursue a trial, our team stands ready to assist clients with whatever the case requires. 

Reger Rizzo & Darnall’s Directors & Officers (D&O) Liability Practice Group has extensive experience defending directors and officers of public and privately held corporations, non-profit organizations, governmental entities and family-run businesses in a wide range of securities and corporate governance claims. 

Our team’s keen understanding of state and federal rules and regulations, coupled with extensive litigation experience enables us to successfully represent clients in actions involving financial institutions, technology, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and healthcare and manufacturing entities.
