Insurers and corporate organisations face differing risks in relation to D&O liability globally. Differing allowable claims, scope and availability of corporate indemnification and differing regulatory systems and governance standards all pose unique challenges.


Global Insurance Law Connect lawyers provide one of the most specialised professional indemnity offerings in the market. Within our wider professional indemnity team, our specialist D&O lawyers have a record of dealing with highly sensitive D&O matters for many high profile insurers and corporate organisations. Our collective client base for D&O claims includes many of the sector’s leading global insurers and Lloyd’s syndicates.
Our D&O specialists provide both a comprehensive international and national service which draws on specialist expertise from member firms to defend the full range of D&O claims against corporates and their directors, and provide coverage advice to insurers arising from those claims.
Our renowned D&O expertise includes providing coverage advice and defense of claims against financial institutions as well as commercial and small to medium enterprises. We are experienced in defending claims which emerge from common policy enhancements including corporate liability, employment practices liability, pension trustee liability and crime. These include breaches of directors’ duties, regulatory investigations leading to personal prosecution of directors, director disqualification and insolvency issues, defamation claims and data protection breaches. We also provide coverage advice to insurers regarding application of policy provisions and exclusions. 
We also frequently deliver training in conjunction with insurers for brokers and senior directors on the benefits and scope of D&O policies. We recently delivered a series of presentations regarding the underlying risks to non-executive directors, as well as providing an overview on cyber as an emerging liability to directors in general.
