On August 18, 2020, the Silicon Valley Directors' Exchange hosted a webinar titled: 2020 Directors & Officers Risk in Times of Crisis and Change. Melinda Guzman was one of the speakers to share her perspective and strategies. A recording of the event will be available.
2020 continues to present Directors and Officers with unpredictable circumstances and high degrees of risk and uncertainty. Strategies for negotiating D&O insurance and perspectives on executive risk are being rethought against the backdrop of changing securities litigation trends, macroeconomic conditions from the fallout of COVID-19, and recent cases of fraud. Our tenured panelists bring decades of D&O market cycle perspectives and will address real life experiences under today’s market conditions. Anyone sitting on a board today will walk away with thought provoking considerations as we head into the final quarters of the year.
