What is Directors and Officers Liability Insurance?

Directors and Officers (D&O) insurance protects those in senior leadership at an organization from personal loss that may arise if they’re sued as a result of their role.

D&O insurance is typically tiered as Side A, B, and C coverage – with Side A offering individuals protection regardless of how their company is covered.

Side A coverage is important for directors and officers for claims where their company fails to or is financially unable to pay for indemnification. This may happen if the company is legally unable to pay due to corporate law or financial insolvency. In this case, the individual director/officer is still protected.

With Side B coverage, coverage responds for the company to the extent indemnification by the company is available.

Side C coverage is also known as "entity coverage," which includes the company itself as an insured in the policy. Choosing D&O coverage depends on industry, company size, and risk levels. Leaders may be vulnerable to lawsuits from employees, vendors, competitors, investors, customers, or other parties.

The scenarios described herein are offered only as examples. Coverage depends on the actual facts of each case and the terms, conditions and exclusions of each individual policy. Anyone interested in the above product(s) should request a copy of the standard form of policy for a description of the scope and limitations of coverage.
