SWG PL - Directors & Officers Liability insurance pays on behalf of individual directors, officers, trustees, volunteers, employees, and members of any duly-constituted committee damages and expenses in the event they are sued in conjunction with the performance of their duties with the corporation. The indemnity includes defense costs and damages that the corporation cannot pay, either because indemnification is not permitted, or the corporation is not financially able to do so. The policy will pay on behalf of the corporation for those amounts the corporation is required or permitted to pay on behalf of its insured persons.

The policy provides full entity coverage for the corporation itself by paying on behalf of the corporation the defense costs and damages that it is legally obligated to pay.
