In your role as a Director or Officer of a business, you will carry out specific duties, and have responsibilities and powers relating to your position. If you are a director or have significant control of a business, directors & officers insurance can protect you as an individual against alleged wrongful acts you have carried out whilst in your position.
Having the right directors & officers cover in place allows the most senior people to come to get on with their roles, safe in the knowledge that if they do things properly, they will not be in a position of personal liability.
