- Johanna Fricano, the Claims Practice leader for Public Company Management Liability of QBE, will offer commentary on what an important D&O insurer is seeing in terms of claims and the implications for D&O insurance.
- Adam Hakki of Sherman & Sterling and Gregory Markel of Seyfarth Shaw, two distinguished and leading members of the Securities Litigation Defense Bar, and Jeroen van Kwawegen of Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann LLP, will provide analysis of the data.
