  • An overview of how this insurance should apply to both executive and non-executive directors.
  • The legal requirements for directors and the defined circumstances where a director could be sued.
  • The sources of possible claims, with examples of claims that have arisen over the last few years.
  • Risks that directors face and the key risk areas you should look out for.
  • How and why D&O Liability Insurance is something all directors should consider to protect personal assets and highlighting the options that IoD members have in order to secure adequate protection.
