Claims scenarios

D&O — A disputed company valuation

A retail company’s minority shareholders wanted to sell their shares, which the company offered to buy out based on a valuation of $10m that was done two years prior. The next year, the company agreed to an acquisition offer at a $50m valuation. The minority shareholders filed a lawsuit alleging that the company’s value was misrepresented due to the outdated valuation, and that it had already fielded acquisition offers over $10m. 

Employment Practices Liability — Accusation of wrongful termination

A company in the service industry received a complaint from one of its customers alleging that its Executive Vice President of Sales (EVP) made unwarranted sexual advances toward one of its employees and threatened to terminate the business relationship unless the EVP was fired. The company’s CEO fired the EVP for gross misconduct as per the EVP’s employment contract. The EVP filed suit against the company and the CEO for wrongful termination and breach of employment contract, alleging that the company did not follow an internal employment policy to investigate allegations before termination, and that the CEO had an ulterior motive for terminating his employment, given the EVP had a large bonus coming up. The EVP demanded over $3m in damages for lost wages/bonus and reputational injury.

D&O — Price-fixing investigation

A manufacturing company received an investigative order from the state attorney general’s office centered around whether the company conspired with its competitor to control product pricing. After an 18-month investigation, there was no finding of price fixing by the company or its competitor. However, the manufacturing company incurred $750k in defense expenses to respond to the investigation.
