March 7, 2006

Dublin-based Research and Markets announced the addition of Director and Officer Indemnification and Insurance for VC (Venture Capital) Backed Companies to their offering.

“Winning legal Strategies: Director and Officer Indemnification and Insurance for VC Backed Companies,” is a “practical guide to crucial financial protection for venture capital professionals and officers of venture-backed companies,” said the announcement.

The book, written by Silicon Valley venture capital attorney Thomas Klein, is both “a plain English primer for the educated executive as well as a hands-on strategy guide for optimizing financial protection for those serving as directors or officers of venture-backed companies,” it continued.

R&M said that Klein’s book has “simplified the complex areas of indemnification and director and officer insurance to provide a readable manual on fundamentals and strategies. In addition, the book includes valuable appendices summarizing leading venture capital cases, including sample indemnification provisions for company charter documents along with an actual indemnification agreement. This is a must-have book for any venture professional taking a seat on a portfolio company board of directors or for any executive taking an officer position at a venture-backed company.”

Topics covered include:
— Director and Officer Indemnification
— Other Elective Mechanisms to Control Liability of Directors and Officers
— Director and Officer Liability Insurance
— Insurance Coverage After an “Exit” for the Venture Capital Company
