D&O liability insurance coverage should be top of mind as the recent rise in popularity of these special purpose acquisition companies (“SPACs”) exposes unique challenges and risks for SPAC executives and sponsors. Not only is SPAC litigation on the rise, but the unique risks SPACs face have translated into higher D&O insurance premiums for substantially less coverage.

Understanding current litigation trends and policy options with respect to insuring SPACs will be key in negotiating optimal D&O liability insurance. 

In this webinar, Courtney Horrigan, Stephanie Gee, and Kya Coletta will discuss recent litigation developments and what to expect from SPAC litigation over the coming years. The panel will also provide guidance on how to minimize litigation risk, advise how to negotiate coverage, and also discuss alternative forms of coverage in the event companies are priced out of purchasing typical D&O coverage.
