Directors & Officers Liability

Directors & Officers Liability Insurance

  • Helps cover defense costs for civil or criminal proceedings as well as resulting judgments or settlements.

  • Provides coverage for directors or officers who could be found personally liable for actions taken on behalf of their organization.

  • Provides protection in cases where corporate indemnification is insufficient, unavailable, or limited by government statute.

Whether you lead a professional firm, a private or public company, a nonprofit organization, or a financial institution, Directors & Officers Liability (D&O) Insurance is essential for protecting your leadership and outside directors who guide the organization.

D&O claims are increasingly common, as are attempts to hold directors and officers personally liable for the professional decisions they make, placing their personal assets in jeopardy.

D&O protects the assets of an organization, its directors and officers, as well as the personal assets of a directors or officer, his or her spouse or domestic partner, or in the case of a deceased director or officer, his or her estate.

Common exposures can include allegations of misrepresentation, conflict of interest and other breaches of fiduciary duties; regulatory actions; and securities litigation, with litigation initiated by employees, shareholders, customers, competitors, and government regulators.

Failure to provide D&O protection can impact an organization's ability to recruit and retain high-caliber leadership.
