New York Attorneys Defending Corporate Directors and Board Officers against Misconduct Claims

Individuals that serve on a board are charged with many complex responsibilities. Due to the complexity of the issues with which they are dealing, and the amount of money that the boards must manage, misconduct and professional malpractice claims often arise if there is any question about how the board is managing the board’s finances and interests.

Are You an Officer or Director Being Sued for Professional Misconduct or Breach of Fiduciary Duty?

We understand that misconduct allegations can have a lifelong impact on your reputation and future career and board opportunities. Our firm is dedicated to thoroughly examining the situation in order to construct a comprehensive defense on your behalf. As experienced insurance defense attorneys, we know how to effectively defend you against unfounded allegations of misconduct or negligence. If you face potential personal liability as an officer or director, it is important that you seek effective legal counsel from an experienced lawyer.

We strive to stand up for your rights and clear you of any and all professional liability charges that you are facing – whatever the nature of the board or company you serve. We confidently provide professional liability defense to individuals who serve on a variety of different types of boards throughout New York City and the surrounding areas, including:

  • Coop boards
  • Condo boards
  • Boards of charitable organizations
  • Boards of trustees
  • Hospital boards
  • Local district and municipal entity boards
  • Non-profit boards

One of the main accusations that officers and directors face is breach of fiduciary duty. Since a fiduciary is someone who has undertaken the responsibility to act for and on behalf of another in a particular matter, being accused of violating this duty is damaging for the fiduciary and requires a full defense. However, this is not the only type of issue faced by board members. An attorney at our firm can discuss with you the other matters that we handle for directors and board members.

Contact our managing partner at Montfort, Healy today. The sooner you call, the sooner we can take the steps necessary to build a full defense on your behalf.

Our law firm handles personal injury, medical malpractice and other insurance defense litigation matters in the State of New York, specifically in the counties of Nassau, Suffolk, Queens (Long Island), Kings (Brooklyn), New York (Manhattan), Richmond (Staten Island), Bronx and Westchester.
