Teleconference - September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attacks: Duties of Corporate Directors and Officers in the Preparation and Execution of Disaster Avoidance and Recovery

What are the obligations of corporate directors and officers in evaluating whether companies they serve have reasonable disaster preparedness and recovery plans in place? What are the tasks that need to be undertaken in avoiding catastrophic situations, including property damage, employee injury and death; and what type of plans should be put in place to minimize business interruptions and compensate injured employees and families of employees killed in the line of work? What liabilities do corporate directors and officers face in failing to live up to their obligations and what insurance is available to protect directors and officers from liability?

On September 16, 2011, from 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m. EDT, the Professional Directors and Officers Liability Committee of TIPS will put on a teleconference answering these questions.  Speakers include, Richard Allyn, Partner, Robins, Kaplan, Miller, & Ciresi L.L.P, whose litigation experience includes include the Northeast Power Outage of 2003 and the World Trade Center collapse, Kevin W. DeVore, Partner, Larson King, LLP, Neil B. Posner, Partner, Much Shelist, and Joe Flach - CEO Safe Harbor Consulting, LLC, formerly, Director, Business Continuity & Emergency Preparedness at  Alaska Airlines.
