Directors & Officers Liability: UK Market Update

7 Jul

Even before COVID-19 led events, Directors and Officers (D&O) Liability – also referred to as Management Liability – was struggling within an already challenging market.

Driving this change, which we first saw emerge in the latter part of 2018 and into 2019, was a severe contraction in capacity across the ‘Financial Lines’ markets and a general increase in claims with the UK becoming more litigious against businesses.

Not to mention the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to a rise in claims notifications over the last few months as businesses navigate new challenges, from employment practice matters and health and safety concerns to business solvency worries and general governance issues.

In our latest guide, we take a look at the Directors and Officers Liability market within the UK, including:

  • The current state of the D&O market
  • What is driving changes within the market
  • A look ahead at the future of the market
  • How you can manage risks and control costs
  • What Thomas Carroll can do to help you
  • Employment Law support for your business
  • Why you should consider D&O Insurance
