Do private companies need directors and officers liability insurance? It is certainly a popular purchase for fast growing companies that are considering an IPO, being acquired, or are in highly regulated industries.

In addition to being part of an overall risk management strategy, D&O insurance can help attract and retain top talent in your organization. Indeed, some sought-after potential directors and officers might be reluctant to join a company without D&O insurance given the difficult litigation environment in the United States.
