Directors’ and Officers’
Directors’ and Officers’, or D&O as it is often referred to, offers financial protection against potential defence and damages costs to the leaders of an organisation should a claim be made against them by customers, third parties or through official investigations.
Whilst most businesses have Employers’ and Third Party liability cover in place, this will not usually cover personal proceedings against directors. At Miles Smith we can work with you to understand your risks and mitigate against them by arranging tailormade cover. And, whilst the legal definition of a director is clear, the same cannot be said for an officer. We’ll help you identify all those at risk and create solutions that keep them protected.
- What’s typically covered?
- Claims made by investors or other shareholders
- Defence costs, compensation and fines as a result of a health and safety claim form an injured employee
- Defence costs and fines from your personal involvement with the administration of a pension scheme
- An employment claim
