ALM’s Law Journal Press Publishes New Book, Directors and Officers Liability Insurance Forms Annotated

NEW YORKFebruary 28, 2013 – ALM’s Law Journal Press, a leading publisher of print and digital publications for legal professionals, today announced the release of a new book, Directors and Officers Liability Insurance Forms Annotated, by Peter K. Rosen.

Directors and officers liability insurance has recently undergone an explosion in popularity fueled by new decisions, new legislation and fallout from the subprime loan crisis. The new book from Law Journal Press, Directors and Officers Liability Insurance Forms Annotated, is an essential reference and forms book for counsel representing both policyholders and insurers.

A detailed table of contents, as well as ordering information for this and other Law Journal Press publications, is available at www.lawcatalog.com.

Directors and Officers Liability Insurance Forms Annotated provides sample language and variations, with analysis of critically important D&O liability insurance issues, from the most basic to the most advanced. Topics covered include: Side A, Side B, and Side C coverage; timing and notice requirements; types of insuring agreements; general provisions and conditions of coverage; defenses against coverage; exclusions from coverage; order of payments; presumptive indemnification; and ADR and mediation clauses. From “drop down coverage” to the “relative exposure” rule, practitioners will find the examples and guidance they need to protect clients’ interests.

Peter K. Rosen is a partner in the Los Angeles office of Latham & Watkins, where he is a member of its Litigation Department and its Insurance Coverage Litigation Practice. He represents policyholders in a wide variety of matters involving directors and officers’ liability insurance. Rosen gained worldwide recognition for his leading role in the massive insurance coverage litigation arising out of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center.
