Directors and Officers Liability (D&O)
Directors and officers (D&O) liability insurance is insurance coverage intended to protect individuals from personal losses if they are sued as a result of serving as a director or an officer of a business or other type of organization. It can also cover the legal fees and other costs the organization may incur as a result of such a suit.
A directors and officers liability policy insures against personal losses, and it can also help reimburse a business or nonprofit for the legal fees or other costs incurred in defending such individuals against a lawsuit. Directors and Officers liability insurance is paid to directors and officers of a company, or to the organization(s) itself, for losses or reimbursement of defense costs if a legal action is brought against them. Such coverage can also extend to criminal and regulatory investigations/trials defense costs. Civil and criminal actions are often brought against directors and officers simultaneously.

D&O insurance has become closely associated with broader management liability insurance, which covers liabilities of the corporation itself as well as the personal liabilities for the directors and officers of the corporation.
