NACD - National Association of Corporate Directors

Resource Center: Director Liability

Directors primarily face liability exposure through the fiduciary duties of care and loyalty under state law, in addition to liability risks from issuing stock or debt and engaging in M&A. This resource center contains guidance and tools for directors to gain a realistic outlook on their own liability so that they are driven by proper standards to be effective directors. 

See NACD’s Resource Center on Corporate Governance Standards for guidance related to federal, state, and stock exchange standards for directors.
