The health and economic repercussions of the current COVID-19 pandemic will not be known for a while—but when it comes to D&O liability issues, good planning can be very helpful.

I recently participated in a webinar hosted by Business Insurance Magazine on the topic of D&O risks and COVID-19. It is clearly a hot topic given that literally thousands of folks attended.

I was joined on the panel by Kevin LaCroix, author of the industry’s leading blog, The D&O Diary, as well as by William Passannante of the firm Anderson Kill.

In this wrap-up edition of the D&O Notebook, I’m providing links to the Business Insurance webinar, now available on demand, as well as some earlier articles I’ve published on various aspects of D&O risks relating to COVID-19.

With so many COVID-19 white papers, memoranda, and updates flying around it is hard for any one mere mortal to keep track of all of them. Stanford’s Rock Center for Corporate Governance to the rescue. (Full disclosure: I serve on the advisory board of the Rock Center.)

The Rock Center has created a marvelous, searchable, website resource that aggregates the memoranda and resource pages from some of the top advisors in the country—many of whom are Rock Center affiliates like Woodruff Sawyer. You can check out this great resource here: http://covidmemo.law.stanford.edu/
