Lenders commonly require independent directors to serve on the boards of special purpose entities (SPEs) formed by companies to safeguard assets during major real estate transactions. Independent directors also play a critical role on the boards of distressed companies. Having the best available directors is the goal of every company, but it becomes critical when an entity faces financial distress. Nothing helps maximize value more and insulates a company from litigation than having knowledgeable, experienced directors to deal with any situation, including a distress situation. CSC's independent directors are knowledgeable about the intricacies of distressed situations and the fiduciary duties of directors of companies that are insolvent or are entering the zone of insolvency.
