WHAT IS IT?
D&O Insurance is a liability policy for your company’s managers, directors, officers, and employees. It protects from lawsuits alleging that their decisions caused financial harm. It may also pay for legal defense.
WHY DO I NEED IT?
D&O Insurance protects your company and its directors against claims from stockholders, employees, and clients. Since company leaders can be held responsible for the acts of the company, most directors and officers will demand to be protected rather than put their assets at stake.
WHO IS IT FOR?
All organizations (public, private, and non-profit) and the individuals who make decisions are at risk of potential liability claims related to their business.

D&O Insurance FAQs
Most organizations carry provisions to protect board members, but there may be exclusions that leave you open to a lawsuit. Liabilities that aren’t covered by your organization can be covered by D&O insurance.
A D&O policy will not recover wages, taxes, fines, penalties, or multiplied damages. It also excludes claims related to unlawful activity.
These claims should be reported immediately when you become aware of the claim.
• Employment practice suits including hiring and firing
• Contract disputes
• Mergers reflecting a conflict of interest
• Financial performance
• Copyright infringement
• Competitor disputes
Typically, your D&O policy includes provisions for a change in control. Often coverage stays in effect for the remainder of the policy period. However, coverage will only be provided for claims involving wrongful acts that occurred before the change. Some policies terminate immediately upon a change in control, so it is important to understand the terms of your policy.
