The impact on the economy has been significant. The government furlough scheme concludes in October however lingering uncertainty is unlikely to improve demand for many products and services. This could have devastating effects for companies.

It is highly likely that a company’s handling of the crisis will be scrutinised by customers, employees, regulators or shareholders. Any perceived mismanagement of the company during the crisis is likely to be targeted. Now, more than ever, businesses need to be clear on how and when their Directors’ & Officers’ (D&O) policy will respond to such an event.

Our panel speakers will explore three of the most common types of claims under a D&O policy which have the potential to increase in frequency as a result of the pandemic including:

  • Insolvency and Wrongful Trading
  • Actions from Shareholders
  • Actions from Third Parties

Attendees will gain a detailed understanding of what the experience is like for the individual concerned including what is likely to happen to them and the support they should expect to receive.

Our Panel:

  • Steve Bear, Executive Director, Financial and Professional Risks at Gallagher
  • Ben Hardiman, Partner, Insurance Disputes at Mills & Reeve
  • Helen Fyles, Partner, Insolvency and Restructuring at Mills & Reeve
