Learn the ins and outs of D&O liability insurance and ensure your clients have the coverage they need. In the aftermath of major credit and financial crises coupled with increased government scrutiny and regulation of corporate governance and reporting, directors and officers are acutely aware of the potential for alleged and actual liability and the importance that directors’ and officers’ liability insurance afford sufficient coverage to provide for a defense and indemnity for any claim, settlement or judgment. This topic will provide you with insight into common issues and trends that arise during a claim for D&O liability insurance coverage. It will open with a discussion of the landscape of directors’ and officers’ liability, including the common allegations and recent claims trends brought in the wake of the credit and financial crises. This topic will also address how D&O insurance operates, including a discussion of the coverage sides, coverage add-ons, covered and noncovered conduct, and treatment of defense costs. It will conclude with a discussion of the current issues and trends in the D&O liability environment and issues that may arise in the negotiation and renewal of D&O liability policies.
