Hunt Ortmann Webinar: Risk Allocation Strategies When Drafting and Negotiating Indemnification Provisions

January 16, 2018

February 1, 2018

Care should be taken when drafting indemnity clauses as it plays a crucial role in managing the risks associated with commercial transactions by protecting against the effects of an act, a contractual default, a breach, or misconduct by one of the parties.

Hunt Ortmann’s JoLynn M. Pollard joins an authoritative panel of attorneys and key thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group as they go beyond the basics of drafting and negotiating indemnification provisions in a wide range of situations, and to spot certain litigation issues that may potentially arise out of indemnification provisions. Speakers will also offer practical drafting tips and identify how to avoid common pitfalls in contractual indemnity clauses and will provide proven risk allocation strategies designed to help avoid contractual disputes surrounding contract, and avoid protracted and costly after-the-event interpretation of the true scope and enforceability of an indemnity clause.

Some of the major topics will include, but not limited to:

  • Indemnification Provisions: An Overview
  • Contracting Trends
  • Purpose of Indemnity
  • Types of Indemnity Clauses
  • Alternatives to Indemnity
  • Common Law Remedies
  • Negotiating Contracts
  • Key Contract Provisions
  • Managing the Internal Contracting Process
  • Benefits of Indemnity Provisions
  • Common Indemnity Clause Drafting Pitfalls
  • Drafting Considerations
