ATLANTA (January 27) – The Blue Ribbon Commission of the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) has published its Report on “Director Liability: Myths, Realities, and Prevention.” Kilpatrick Stockton Partner Neil Falis was a member of the prestigious 23-person Commission, and an active participant in preparing the Report.
“The Commission’s members included directors, general counsel and executive officers of some of the largest companies in the country, many of whom are leaders in the corporate governance arena,” said Mr. Falis. “As a result, the Report reflects the perspectives of people who grapple with director liability issues on a daily basis.”
The Commission’s report separates myths from realities concerning directors’ liability exposure, and recommends a series of best practices for directors to limit that exposure.
The NACD established the Commission to assess current trends in litigation against directors, and to consider more generally recent developments in stockholder litigation, its impact on the fiduciary duties of directors at both the federal and state levels, and to recommend practices that may allow directors to move beyond compliance to focus on creating value for stockholders.
Mr. Falis added, “The Commission’s Report is unparalleled in its clear assessment of where and how real risks have increased for directors, and debunks myths that have resulted from misinterpretations of recent events in the media and elsewhere. It is highly readable for the busy director or executive, as well as informative for an experienced corporate lawyer.”
The Commission was chaired by Norman Veasey, former chief justice of the Delaware Supreme Court and, along with Mr. Falis of Kilpatrick Stockton, included legal and corporate leaders from companies across the country, including: American Express, Black & Decker, Conoco-Phillips, DuPont, ExxonMobil, General Electric, General Motors, Pfizer, Inc., Proctor & Gamble, TIAA/CREF, Tyco International, Wells Fargo and others.
