Deteriorating economic conditions threaten a massive wave of corporate defaults.  Corporate borrowers’ inability to fulfill debt obligations could not only prompt a bankruptcy filing surge, but could also result in a flood of lawsuits and claims as creditors and shareholders seek to recoup their losses.  These claims could present a host of challenging D&O coverage issues.
