August 8, 2018

Management Liability/D&O

Private companies need directors and officers insurance, too—especially those growing companies that are looking at an IPO, being acquired, or are in highly regulated industries.

It’s not just to manage risk, either. D&O insurance can help attract and retain top talent in your organization as a best practice offering.

However, D&O insurance is complex—and structuring your D&O insurance program takes expertise if you want to be sure that it will respond in the areas where you face the most risk.

Each year, Woodruff Sawyer releases its “Guide to Private Company D&O Insurance” to help large private corporations navigate this complicated topic.
