Directors & Officers Liability Claim Trends

The commentators and firms that track federal securities filings all agree that 2016 saw unprecedented litigation activity and that a public company has never had a greater likelihood of receiving a D&O claim. Federal filings last year increased by 44 percent over 2015. Remarkably, 2017 may outpace it. This article discusses additional trends such as:

  • The likelihood of a company facing a securities lawsuit has never been higher
  • Approximately one in four private companies suffered a D&O loss during the last three years
  • Emergence of cyber-related D&O claims has been a worrisome trend over the last 12 to 24 months, with a current claim against Yahoo
  • SEC Enforcement activity continues at a strong pace
  • Continued success for the SEC Whistleblower program
