Corporate Insurance Liability: Event for Small Businesses

Dan Lawrie Insurance Brokers Ltd. is hosting a complimentary breakfast seminar that will delve into the topic of whether your company’s directors and officers are protected from liability issues. This company offers a range of personal and corporate insurance products and has become one of the largest insurance organizations in Southern Ontario.

What Is Director and Officer Liability?

Director and Officer liability includes the following:

  • Protecting company’s assets
  • Protecting personal assets of a company’s directors and officers
  • Provides reimbursements to the firms to indemnify director’s and officer’s losses
  • Help organization monitor and provide defense costs associated with responding to lawsuits and investigations

The following are current trends that demonstrate why your business should consider purchasing D&O coverage:

  • Access to adequate capital
  • Internet growth
  • Keeping up with technology
  • Protecting intellectual property assets
  • Retain qualified workers

Private corporations should consider buying director and officer liability coverage as the cost of defending corporate lawsuits may exceed the net worth of most private companies. Without this coverage, companies will have difficulty attracting qualified individuals to their Board, business decisions made by D&O’s can quickly impact the finances and operations of a company. Additionally, corporate indemnification may not be available and judgments can be financially crippling.
