Utah Directors and Officers Liability Insurance

We offer directors and officers liability insurance to public companies, private companies, nonprofit organizations, partnerships, and joint ventures located in Utah.

D&O insurance policies in Utah can usually be tailored to include only a certain coverage, such as Coverage A, or to cover only certain directors.

While directors and officers of public companies represent a large share of D&O lawsuits, directors and officers of private companies and not-for-profit entities in Utah face increasing risks of D&O lawsuits. In addition to shareholders, D&O lawsuits are also frequently brought by customers, employees, competitors and regulators.

How are D&O insurance premiums determined in Utah?

Insurance companies in Utah each have their specific and mostly unique rating plan which is used to calculate D&O insurance premiums. The basic factors of a D&O insurance rating plan are typically the entity's assets and the selected limit of liability and deductible. There are multiple other factors which can impact the D&O premium calculation, including the Utah entity's specific industry, experience of management, claim history, and the number of years in business.

The D&O premium of Utah for-profit entities can also be impacted by recent or prospective mergers & acquisitions, profitability, market capitalization, and quality of balance sheet.

Because D&O premiums can vary widely by insurance company, we usually request quotes from multiple insurance companies.
