I found this nifty workshop advertised on Greenhorn Connect:
The Capital Network – Expert Lunch: UNDERSTANDING D&O INSURANCE AND INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENTS
Wed, 01/11/2012 – 12:00pm – 2:00pm
Bingham McCutchen One Federal Street 13th Floor Boston, MA
This session will help attendees understand what (if any) D&O insurance and indemnification agreements are in place for their protection and learn how they and their investors are exposed from a personal level. We will review claim scenarios and corporate indemnification policies, and provide a basic overview of D&O insurance including critical “state of the art” coverage provisions for dealing with this risk.
Working lunch programs are hosted by TCN’s professional service sponsors to provide tactical level information designed to accelerate the fundraising process.
Phil Mason – President, Mason & Mason Technology Insurance Services
Jason Rodriguez – Partner, Bingham McCutchen LLP
If you are an executive or serve on the board of directors of a company, then you should know your LIABILITY exposure as part of your job/position. I can’t speak for the value of these speakers but Bingham McCutcheon is a respectable firm in Boston. And besides, if you’re collecting 5-10k a year to sit on a board (or worse zero:) and you don’t know the risks, I think the $70 might be worth finding out how much these speakers do know!
Either way, I am simply passing on the info, not recommending this firm, but recommending generally that you get educated on this topic if applicable to you!
And FYI – get on Greenhorn Connect’s email list if you would like to know about upcoming entrepreneurial and start-up activities around town.
