Directors & Officers Liability

Insurance

Directors & Officers Liability insurance – what is it about?

The truth is that liability of a company is limited, while its Director‘s – unlimited. In the event the corporate directors or officers are personally sued by employees, vendors, competitors, investors, customers, or other parties, for actual or alleged wrongful acts in managing a company, their family assets remain unprotected. Even in the case such unfounded claims are of provocative, or politically motivated nature, the cost of their legal protection can be huge.
This is the reason why Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability Insurance became a prerequisite for attracting and retaining key people in most companies or organisations.
