To Indemnify, or To Hold Harmless? Strategies for Drafting Better Indemnification Provisions


(This is a “simulive” rebroadcast of a previously recorded presentation. Presenter Espenscheid will be available during the rebroadcast to answer questions.)

Originally recorded November 14, 2016.

How have recent cases influenced best practices in drafting indemnification provisions? What is the distinction between “indemnify,” and “hold harmless”? Are your indemnification provisions providing the best possible protections for your client? In this session, we’ll consider recent cases and make practical recommendations for improving these high-risk provisions.

In this session, you’ll learn about:

  • The traditional meaning and purposes of indemnification in contracts;
  •  What recent cases tell us about the meaning of “hold harmless”;
  •  How first-party claims are sometimes allowed under the auspices of “indemnification”; and
  • Strategies for drafting better indemnification provisions.
