Shareholder Derivative Litigation: A Primer for Insurance Coverage Counsel and Other Lawyers, Too

Lawyers advising directors, officers, and general counsel should understand the complex interplay between indemnification permitted by statute and coverage under D&O liability insurance, as well as the unique procedural challenges in a derivative suit.

As TIPS celebrates the Section's 80th anniversary, a former editor-in-chief and current member of the ABA Board of Governors offers information on the origins and early history of The Brief.

The outgoing Section chair interviewed former TIPS chairs to determine what makes TIPS unique among all ABA Sections. He also examines TIPS's goals, and recaps highlights of the Section's 80th year.

Facilitating the participation of young lawyers in TIPS involves creating leadership opportunities for new members by providing a forum for maxmizing learning and Section involvement.
