Whether statutory liabilities, breach of duty, or wrongful allegations of breaches, all can put the company in question under a spotlight and in an uncomfortable legal position. Directors and officers liability insurance will provide an efficient means of protection for individuals under these circumstances.

Why Buy Directors and Officers Insurance?

In the event of a lawsuit, the protection provided by the Directors and Officers Insurance would cover defense costs and any potential awards or settlements arising from successful litigation.

With insolvency or wrongful act lawsuits on behalf of a director (resulting in legal process), Directors and Officers Insurance ensures that they would have the legal defense and indemnification if found liable.

Non-profits, in particular, have limited resources with which to respond to indemnification claims. This would put the personal assets of the office staff at risk, along with the assets of the organization itself.

Directors and Officers Insurance for Private Companies

Public or private companies have the same exposure risk. Conflicts of interest, allegations of misrepresentation, and breaches of fiduciary duty – all hold the same weight in court.

Prudent companies buy Directors and Officers Liability Insurance to protect themselves from any and all instances where legal proceedings and potential payouts would cause severe financial distress to a private organization.

The most honest answer is now! Put an insurance policy into motion before any instances arise where your fiscal ability to survive them may be challenged, and your organizational reputation is put to the test.
