Developments in D&O Liability for Environmental Contamination
Natural Resources and Energy Law, Environmental Law | Original Program Date: April 30, 2014

Directors and officers face increasing personal exposure for environmental liability. Ensure your natural resource and energy clients understand their exposure and how they can mitigate the risk of liability for environmental contamination.
The Ministry of the Environment has started looking to directors and officers to pay remediation costs where a company has stopped operating or has gone bankrupt. In the recent case, Baker et al. v. Director, Ministry of the Environment ("Baker"), the directors and officers settled a Ministry Order for $4.75 million. The directors and officers were required to pay the settlement personally. Join us for an important discussion on:

  • The potential environmental liabilities for directors and officers of natural resources and energy companies
  • how to manage environmental liabilities and steps to minimize the risk
  • What insurance is (and is not) available for environmental liability for companies and directors and officers

If you advise resource or energy companies or their directors and officers, or are corporate or in-house counsel, this is a discussion you should be a part of - register now.
