Compensation agreements have several advantages over the compensation provisions in the organization documents. Compensation agreements can be more easily enforced by D-Os, as these are bilateral contracts that reflect a review in the form of an individual agreement to accept or continue the service with the company. In general, compensation agreements also offer broader and more in-depth protection of the compensation rights of D-O as statutes and organisational documents. Compensation agreements often include detailed procedures and timelines for determining when compensated persons are entitled to payment, and they clarify the types of claims and procedures that are covered. A well-written compensation agreement should include, for example, that if the company has insufficient D-O insurance and expires while the company is still solvent, a good compensation contract will ensure that legal fees are advanced and that comparisons are paid by the company and not by individual directors or senior managers. Here, a good personal compensation contract can save the day.

Compensation costs incurred in the course of a proceeding, which relate to the right of workers to benefit from an exemption or a delay in expenses, in whole or in part, under this agreement, are also compensated by the company, regardless of the outcome of such a procedure, to the widest possible extent permitted by the current legislation and by the statutory certificate of the company as amended. A compensation agreement in this regard is a contract between the individual director or officer and the company that the director or official serves.
These agreements promise (1) lawyer`s fees in advance and (2) loss (compensation) on behalf of a person if he is mentioned in an action in his or her capacity as director or official of the company. The main reason why individuals have entered into a written compensation agreement is that written agreements generally offer broader protection than company statutes or legal provisions. Most statutes provide, for example, permissive compensation, while most written agreements are mandatory.
