third-party liability insurance for ‘managers’


Explanation:
If you’re self-employed or run a business, you must also have third-party liability insurance for ‘managers’ (assurance responsabilité civile chef d’entreprise), the cost of which depends on your line of work.

directors and officers liability insurance


Explanation:
Companies often take out insurance for their officers and directors, protecting them from personal liability in the event they are sued in their personal capacity. It's also referred to as "D&O Liability Insurance". This Wikipedia article has a nice little summary. I believe the term is applicable in the UK as well.

It seems to me this is what your sentence is talking about.

hi Joannah, it won't work, see:

responsabilité civile is for sure civil liability, the link gives the translation of responsabilité professionnelle
and responsabilité de l'employeur: employers' liability

Asker: Hi Hirselina, Thank you for answering. It's the "chef d’entreprise" part that I'm interested in. The civil liability insurance part is quite obvious.
