Directors and Officers Liability
Directors and Officers Liability (D&O) protects a Director’s or Officer’s own property when their personal liability is incurred.
Nowadays, business leaders are finding their personal liability increasingly incurred
Although such allegations do not necessarily result in conviction, the directors concerned are often put personally to a severe test and have to ensure effective defence.
This tendancy can be largely explained by the rise in compliance standards and requirements, some of which are contradictory, especially from one country to another for companies with operations abroad.
