Threat of Securities Class Action Suits Signals Need for D&O Protection

In 2017, a record number of 8% of all publicly listed companies were subject to a lawsuit against directors and officers, well above the historical annual average of approximately 3%. Last year began with a total of 785 pending cases in the federal court system, a 12% increase over 2016 case inventory.  The recorded pending case count in the federal system alone poses potential investor losses of $900 billion, as reported by the National Economic Research Associates (NERA) 2017 Review.
