Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide insight into insurance and indemnification provisions in real estate purchase and sale agreements (PSAs), leases, and construction contracts. The panel will discuss current trends and practical strategies in negotiating and litigating these provisions, the advanced arguments made by the parties to these instruments, and how to resolve complex disputes over these clauses.

Description

Indemnification agreements obligate one party--the indemnitor--to compensate another--the indemnitee--for losses or damages, often when a third party is suing the indemnitee. Parties engaged in activities involving considerable risk seek to indemnify themselves against that risk, often through insurance.

Indemnification and insurance are also frequently used where one party has sufficient leverage over another party to require indemnification as a contract term. Such provisions are common in PSAs, leases and construction contracts. And it is not uncommon for a party to require a more fulsome, stand-alone indemnity agreement in addition to the indemnity in the underlying agreement.

In these types of real estate contracts, the language is critical, and specific rules are triggered when an indemnity claim is made. Informed counsel must recognize how to protect client interests by deftly structuring these provisions.

Listen as our authoritative panel of real estate practitioners discusses current trends and practical strategies in negotiating and litigating these provisions, the advanced arguments made by the parties to these instruments, and how to resolve complex disputes over these clauses.
