This chapter discusses the theme of this book, which is the effectiveness of shareholder litigation in regulating corporate conduct. Based on interviews with people connected with Directors' and Officers' liability insurance, or D&O insurance, it examines the relationship between insurance and shareholder litigation and evaluates whether shareholder litigation accomplishes its regulatory objective. The chapter also discusses how the emerging consensus among most corporate and securities law scholars rejects compensation as a justification for shareholder litigation.
