Webinar: Why you need to be talking to your Clients about D&O and EPL Cover Now!

  • Wed 03 Jun 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
  • Zoom - Webinar
    • Alan Chandler

The webinar will briefly explain the history of D&O and how the D&O market place is changing dramatically due to the Covid-19 lockdown and its effect on the economy. The sad fact is that many businesses will struggle badly over the next few month and lots of redundancies will have to be made. This will result in a sharp spike in both Directors and Officers and Employment Liability Practices claims. The market will harden and that is why it is essential brokers have conversations with their clients now. It should also be noted that many more directors are being sued individually and also that the amount of HSE prosecutions have trebled against individual directors since 2015.

Unsurprisingly these have generated strong feelings on all sides of the argument. The Civil Liability Act, now scheduled to take effect in April 2021, will introduce what are likely to be the most sweeping changes yet.
