D&O, Professional Indemnity and Legal Protection
Management risk policy for activities related to the role in the company.
Risk management related to professional activity
CEOs, board members, top managers and auditors operate in an increasingly complex and litigious environment.
Without doubt such persons are highly likely, more so now than ever before, to be placed under investigation or called to appear in court as a result of decisions or actions taken as part of their professional activity.
In Europe and on a global basis, shareholders, business partners, investors and third parties in general are taking an increasingly activist role in corporate life in order to defend their interests.
Company directors are legally, personally and jointly liable for damages caused to third parties or to the company as a consequence of decisions taken in the exercise of their professional activity.
The increasingly high-profile positions occupied by top managers, greater and more complex regulation, as well as the prevailing socio-economic and legal environment have together created an inevitable requirement for cover in such areas as D&O insurance, professional indemnity and legal protection.
Legal protection is a form of insurance that covers legal fees in the event of a civil or penal case, whether in court or extra-judicial.
