Management Liability, Directors and Officers (D&O) Insurance
Also known as management liability, Directors and Officers (D&O) insurance protects the decisions made by a company’s management team, such as the Board of Directors, managers, or Officers. More specifically, this type of coverage is designed to cover any associated defense costs that may be incurred through investigations of criminal acts or regulations, whether intentional or accidental on your part. Can you afford to risk NOT having this type of insurance coverage? Not when you consider the astronomically high costs these types of defenses usually entail. All it takes is one lawsuit and your reputation, not to mention your business, can be wiped out.

D & O Insurance – Is different from professional liability insurance
Protecting your directors and officers (management) entity is a critical component and should be a vital part of your total insurance package. It doesn’t matter which type of company you have – for-profit, non-profit, public or private – a D&O policy purchase is a vital aspect of your business approach. D&O insurance is a bit different from your Professional Liability policy because it doesn’t protect your services but rather your management. If, for instance, your company were ever to go bankrupt with the stocks becoming worthless, the CEO may be fired but the rest of the company still has a leg to stand on in court for its defense or even a settlement for shareholders when a solid D&O policy is in place.
