CNA Insurance
Directors & Officers (D&O) Liability

D&O insurance covers directors and officers of public, private, and not-for-profit corporations for loss (damages and defense costs) arising out of their status or conduct as directors or officers. Common claims allege breach of duty, security law violations, and unfair competition. CNA offers coverage on both a primary and an excess basis.

Directors and officers of companies make difficult and challenging decisions every day. Sometimes those decisions can end up costing them personally. The leaders of any organization, public or private, can face personal liability for the decisions they make. They can be sued based upon their actions while running the company, or they can be named in a lawsuit simply because they are directors and officers.

CNA provides: 

  • Coverage for the directors and officers of a company in the event they are sued in conjunction with performing their duties and responsibilities
  • Optional entity liability coverage to help protect the assets of the insured company
