Articles

The benefits of directors and officers insurance policies have been curtailed by the breadth of some courts' broad application of the "insured vs. insured" exclusion, which is common to D&O policies. Some courts have expanded the exclusion's scope to reach claims brought by or on behalf of the bankruptcy estate against insured directors and officers. Nevertheless, there are certain steps that bankruptcy and insurance practitioners can take to avoid or minimize the pitfalls of the insured vs. insured exclusion.
