This Executive Counsel article titled "Your Company, Deputized" discusses the payment of legal fees for corporate officers and directors who are involved in litigation as a result of their jobs. This article quotes a statement made by Peter G. Verniero, Co-Chair of the Firm's Corporate Internal Investigations and Business Crimes Practice Group. According to the article, "...Peter Verniero stated recently, 'Whenever appropriate, the government must require business entities - and the executives who manage them - to account for their conduct. But investigators must treat such entities and individuals with the same degree of fairness as we would expect to occur in other areas.'"
