Historically, multinational firms have insured their directors and officers worldwide by purchasing a global directors and officers (D&O) liability policy. Today, however, international directors and officers may be at significant risk if they are insured only by a U.S.-based policy. Prudent companies are augmenting their global program with country-specific coverage.
