Skadden partner and Boston litigation practice leader Thomas J. Dougherty has published the latest edition of The Directors' Handbook (CSC Publishing, 2013), which discusses the evolving role of directors and the issues they face in the wake of corporate scandals and heightened liability.

The 2013 edition explores the challenges directors face when trying to process the volumes of information that they receive, the "merger objection litigation" phenomenon as it relates to director conduct, and the complexities presented by economic rebound and consolidation.
