Scottsdale Directors and Officers Liability Insurance coverage is a necessary part of managing a private or publicly traded company, considering the current litigious environment. Directors and Officers are held to a high standard and have legal responsibilities to shareholders, investors, creditors, employees, and others. The public is increasingly holding directors and officers responsible for the day-to-day operations of their companies and its profits.
Directors and Officers can be held personally responsible for the investment decisions of the company’s portfolio of assets. D&O Liability insures corporate directors and officers against claims, usually by stockholders, alleging loss arising from mismanagement. The insurance is divided into two separate coverages. One coverage reimburses the corporation for payments made to its directors or officers for loss incurred because of wrongful acts. The other coverage pays on behalf of the directors or officers themselves. D&O policies are written as “claims made” policies. Coverage is determined by the date the claim is made subject to a retroactive date. PJO Insurance Brokerage has several markets for these coverages to ensure your company’s directors and officers are covered in the event a lawsuit brought against your business.
