Over the years your company has grown by leaps and bounds, and today, you have a board of directors and officers helping you run your business with sights on growing beyond Ohio. Their insight is invaluable, and their commitment to the business unparalleled. Without your board, your business would have floundered years ago, struggling to get to the next level and the right Ohio Directors and Officers insurance policy can help protect them.
Don’t leave your directors hanging in terms of liability. The decisions they make can impact your business, your employees, and the customers you serve. When mistakes are made or people are unhappy, your directors and officers can come under direct fire for it.
That’s where an Ohio Directors and Officers (D&O) insurance policy comes in. When your company is sued by an employee, a vendor, a customer, or any other injured third-party, they can name members of your board. This means that in a judgement against your business, the directors could be held personally liable for damages.
In Ohio, Directors & Officers insurance helps you attract the best people to serve on your board and work in your growing corporation. It protects them in tough times and makes it easier for them to make the tough decisions.
What types of Ohio Businesses need Directors and Officers insurance?

What does Directors & Officers insurance cover?
Directors and officers face many allegations. The most common include:
- Breaches of fiduciary responsibility
- Securities litigation
- Regulatory actions
When a settlement is reached or a claim filed, your directors and officers won’t have to worry that their personal assets will be used to pay the claim. Your liability coverage takes care of the claim up to your policy limits so your directors’ spouses, domestic partners, families, and even their estates don’t suffer.
