The Hammer Clause associated with a D&O liability insurance ensures settlement of the claims made by the insured. The insurer has to mandatorily settle the claims, according to the Hammer Clause.  Hammer clause allows the insurer to force the insured to settle the claim. 
The Hammer Clause complies with the other terms and conditions of the D&O Policy, within the legal framework. The clause is designed in a way to blend with the essence of the insurance policy document.
