Director's and Officer's Liability Defense

When claims or lawsuits are brought against Associations, Directors, or Managers, the partners in our “Directors and Officers” (“D&O) Defense Group are skilled at quickly identifying the risks associated with the claim and developing the necessary defense strategies. Our clients benefit from our firm's service to community associations throughout our state for over 30 years. Our familiarity with day-to-day challenges presented to directors and management help guide and streamline our initial analysis.

Our experience, and an initial investigation within the first 45 to 60 days of assignment, form the basis of our initial case analysis (ICA). The ICA provides clients and their insurance representatives with a preliminary analysis of the key facts and witnesses, potential liability and damage exposures, and colorable defenses. This information informs the client and its insurer of our suggested defense strategy.

Our D&O Defense Group experience covers a wide range of issues arising out of community association disputes including:

  • Architectural Control and Authority
  • Assessment Allocation and Collection
  • Bankruptcy
  • Board Authority
  • Budgets and Reserves
  • Construction
  • Contracts
  • Defamation
  • Disability and Discrimination
  • Easements
  • Elections and Governance
  • Employment
  • Failure to Enforce Governing Documents
  • Fiduciary Duty
  • Nuisance
  • Maintenance, Repairs, and Special Assessments
  • Statutes of Limitation, Waiver and “Laches”
  • Voting and Amendments

We negotiate advantageous settlements and have the confidence to litigate and arbitrate cases through trial, appellate courts, and the California Supreme Court. Our attorneys communicate well, understand the importance of client contact and individualized attention, and strive to meet the needs of our clients and their representatives.
