Non-Member Price: $55
Director & Officer Liability Insurance may be the most important defense for directors facing the threat of personal liability, yet many Boards leave the negotiation of these policies to the management team. Only too late do Directors learn whether or not they are entitled to advancement of legal expenses, have access to the policy if the company becomes insolvent or must litigate with the insurer over coverage. Featuring experts from the carrier, broker and insurance litigation communities, this program will help directors to ask the right questions and insist on the right coverage—don’t miss what could be the program that saves your Board time, money and sleepless nights!
