Directors & Officers (D&O) Liability insurance is designed to protect the people who serve as directors or officers of a company from personal losses if they are sued by the organization’s employees, vendors, customers or other parties. D&O insurance can cover defense costs, settlements and other costs associated with wrongful act allegations and lawsuits. Directors & Officers insurance is an important aspect of a corporate risk management strategy and can help your company attract and retain qualified executives and board members.
Directors and officers are sued for a variety of reasons related to their company roles, including:
Side A Coverage:
Covers directors, officers for defence costs, settlement fees, or judgments if the company cannot indemnify them, such as if the company has declared bankruptcy.
Side B Coverage:
Covers the company for directors’, officers’, and employees’ losses when the company does indemnify them.
Side C Coverage:
Also called “entity coverage,” financially protects the corporation in its own right. Entity coverage may reduce the limits available to protect the individual officers and directors.
