Book Description

“With the ever increasing number of claims against directors and officers, this book provides a very welcome addition to the bookshelves which hitherto have lacked books on this important area” - Alison Green, Chairman of the Trustees of the BILA Charitable Trust. This book scrutinises the origins and the rationale underlying D&O insurance, and provides answers to the question of protecting directors against the potential liabilities they may face. It provides clear understanding about D&O policies wording, exclusions and issues of misrepresentation. The information contained in this new book includes Nature and Legality of D&O Liability Insurance, D&O Exclusions, Directors’ and Officers’ Liability to Third Parties, Directors’ Liability at Civil Law, D&O: Defence Costs Cover and Allocation, Aggregation Principles and D&O Cover and the Reinsurance of D&O Policies.
