Directors & Officers Liability

Many directors and officers assume that they are protected by the limited liability status of their company. Directors do not have limited personal liability and in the event of a claim their personal assets may be at risk.

A shareholder, employee or any other third party may take action against directors, officers or senior managers if they are accused of being engaged in wrongful or misleading acts whilst conducting company business.

In the event of a claim substantial costs can be incurred. D & O insurance provides indemnity in respect of these costs and any damages awarded. Thus protecting the individuals own assets.
