Coverage for defense costs incurred in defending a company from an unfriendly takeover attempt. Hostile takeovers have been one of the hottest business topics in recent years. Vulnerable companies have responded in a variety of ways including changing the corporate bylaws, selling off their most attractive assets, and, in the last resort, voting themselves huge severance packages or "golden parachutes." When a company or individual makes a tender offer for the stock of its takeover target, the latter company usually hires legal experts and mounts a costly defense. This insurance is an example of a specialized coverage that grew to meet a specific need.
