German term or phrase: Exzedenten-Haftpflichtversicherung
Sorry, no context - this a heading. There is also a heading:

My guess is that this is 'excess liability insurance' but I can't find a reference to support this

A search on "excess liability insurance" will result in quite a few hits. See, for instance, the following:

What is Personal Excess Liability Insurance?
This is coverage that protects you from the unthinkable - being sued for an unfortunate mishap. It is also called Personal Umbrella Liability and Personal Catastrophe Coverage. In the past this type of coverage was considered necessary only for those who had vast assets to protect. Unfortunately, because today lawsuits are all too common and aren't restricted to the wealthy, personal excess liability policies are becoming much more necessary.
While most homeowners and automobile policies provide basic coverage, personal excess liability increases your protection and also fills in the gaps between liability, home and auto coverage. It provides protection whether you're at home, away, or in your car; it extends an umbrella of liability coverage over you for any (non-business) activities you may engage in. This type of insurance can vary widely from company to company. Ellis Insurance can help assess the limits of your liability coverage in your home and auto policies and help determine the appropriate liability protection for your exposure.

Excess Liability Insurance
In today's business environment, it has become increasingly important to offer special benefits to your key executives. One of the most sought-after insurance products for individuals with substantial assets is excess liability insurance. Often, this insurance is difficult to obtain, especially for individuals whose large asset base makes them more at risk for a high liability lawsuit.
Mesirow Financial has designed a personal excess liability program that you can offer your employees.
