What is the general issue? Why this is important now?
Claims from Stockholders, clients and/or employees against companies, and directors and officers of companies, are reported in the news in large numbers.  These days, most Officers demand that they be covered for such claims, rather than potentially putting their owner personal assets at stake.  It is important from both the plaintiff and defense perspective to have a current and complete understanding of the field of D&O insurance.
