The responsibilities and exposures of directors and officers for D&O liability continue to evolve, and case law interpreting policy provisions and limitations continues to expand. D&O policies cover a wide array of exposures. There is no doubt claims arising from today's environment of economic uncertainty, global pandemic, and social unrest will be the subject of cases reported in the weeks and months to come.

The Directors and Officers Liability Insurance Deskbook reflects on this history of directors and officers exposures and the insurance coverage called upon to address those risks. To help you understand and interpret D&O liability and coverage, this updated edition provides a current and insightful reference tool for navigating the current landscape. The authors provide synopses of important judicial decisions in various jurisdictions on the key provisions that commonly arise. Important issues covered in the book include:

  • Policy issuance

  • Trigger and scope of coverage
  • Defense obligations
  • Policy limits, retentions, and exclusions
