- Interplay with insurance
- Statutory considerations
- Additional insured coverage
- Additional insured vs. additional named insured
- Endorsements vs. certificate of insurance
- Policy language and various additional insured forms

- The interplay between contractual indemnity and additional insured coverage
- Contractual indemnification
- Contractual insurance requirements
- Additional insured coverage
- Crafting contractual indemnification provisions
- Overview of subrogation principles

The panel will review these and other relevant issues:
- How can counsel draft indemnification lease provisions that protect their clients--whether the indemnitor, landlord, or tenant?
- How can counsel ensure that contractually required AI coverage is satisfied by the named insured's policy?
- How have the prior ISO's revisions to AI endorsements narrowed the scope of coverage for AIs?
- How can counsel draft subrogation waivers that protect both landlords and tenants?
