Directors and officers liability insurance, also called D&O, covers a company’s former and current directors and officers, as well as the corporate entity, against defense fees, costs, and damages in connection with a lawsuit alleging that they committed certain wrongful acts or omissions while acting as directors and officers for the company.
Directors and officers liability insurance is liability insurance payable to the directors and officers of a company, or the company itself, as reimbursement for losses related to defense costs as a result of loss related to the legal action taken alleging the insured committed wrongful acts in their capacity as directors and officers.
D&O insurance policies may cover defense fees and costs in connection with criminal and regulatory investigations and lawsuits. D&O insurance claims potentially cover claims made by individual and company shareholders in customers, regulators, shareholder-derivative actions, and competitors.
D&O policy forms often increase legal fees and costs necessary to resolve disputes between those insured and their D&O insurers since they vary from insurer to insurer and industry to industry.
