I just had a recruiter reach out to me about a firm hiring in their “director and officer liability” practice group which I’ve never heard of before. Anyone practicing in this area? I’d love any insight.

I have done a little of this. It’s when D&O of a company are personally sued by shareholders, employees, or third parties for alleged wrongful acts in managing the company. Lots of derivative lawsuits, breach of fiduciary duty, acting for personal gain, piercing the corporate veil, compelling them to perform a specific act, etc. Usually if they were acting in the scope of their duties it’s covered by insurance, and if not, not.

I’ve also practiced this area before - my experience was mainly director and officer liability for non-profits - mainly homeowners’ associations … not the most glamorous or my favorite but there are definitely some positives to handling these types of cases. See if you can determine what sort of clients the firm represents.

Does anyone have any experience with the background checks, and whether they would be able to know that I had previously accepted another offer elsewhere?

The role is very different and is something that I want to do, but it is a horizontal company in the same industry.
