Management Liability Insurance in Action

The Client

A restaurant with 20 staff and an annual turnover of $800K

The Claim

A marketing firm was sued for misleading and deceptive conduct by one of the Insured’s competitors for advertising that the Insured restaurant employed a celebrity chef when this particular chef was actually employed by the competitor.

The marketing firm then joined the Director of the Insured to the proceedings alleging that they provided them with a verbal and written statement that this celebrity chef was employed in their restaurant.

The Outcome

The claim was ultimately settled out of court for the amount of $50,000 with the Insured agreeing to contribute $25,000 to the settlement of the claim.
