Any director or officer can be sued by shareholders, employees or other third parties who believe they have failed to exercise due care in the running of their business. This is a daunting prospect but a reality when making decisions in a company.
Directors & officers insurance provides financial protection for the directors and officers of a company if they are sued in relation to the performance of their duties in the company.
Claims against directors and officers can be made for all manner of breaches of duty including corporate manslaughter, pollution, data protection, discrimination and insolvency.
To protect yourself in these times of increased regulation and legal action, directors and officers insurance is important for senior decision makers to protect themselves, and more specifically their personal assets, which would otherwise be impacted if the claim were successful. The team at CJ Insurance can help you prevent this by arranging a directors and officers policy which can closely protect against the risks you may face.
To establish these risks, we are happy to talk to you over the phone, by email or in person with a visit to your premises, wherever you are in the UK, to assess your requirements and make suitable recommendations.
