About the Presentation:
Indemnification agreements are widely used to shift risk in a variety of commercial transactions. Insurance coverage counsel must understand the impact of indemnity agreements on insurance--who is ultimately responsible for the claim? When and how is this responsibility shared?
Coverage disputes often arise when attempting to reconcile indemnity agreements and insurance policies. "Other insurance" clauses and exclusions for liabilities assumed by contract provide fertile ground for disputes and litigation.
The indemnitor must negotiate contractual provisions that limit the scope of the indemnification. The party seeking indemnification must negotiate provisions that address the indemnitee's negligence, additional insured status, and scope of the defense.
Listen as our authoritative panel of insurance attorneys discusses the law of contribution and indemnity and how to reconcile contractual indemnity language with insurance policy provisions. The panel will offer best practices for drafting contractual indemnification provisions.
