Boardroom Insider features comments by Lynda A. Bennett on D&O liability risks in the wake of COVID-19. She notes that insurance companies will “take a careful look at your public disclosures on preparations and risk factors” and that a legitimate “notice of circumstances” now can lock in coverage under current terms for possible future claims. Bennett also observes: “There’s going to be a scramble to keep Side A coverage in place,” with the price for this kind of personal protection likely to go up. Finally, she cautions that “[t]here will be no more rote renewals.” Bennett expects tighter terms, broader exclusions for risks associated with pandemics, more questions about preparedness, and increased premiums from fewer providers.
