Workshop: Indemnity Agreements and Insurance

June 13, 2011

Please join Cox Smith on June 13, 2011, as Tom Alleman, Brett Schouest and Derrick Pizarro will present an in-depth look at contract provisions that too often get overlooked until it is too late – namely provisions governing each party's indemnity obligations as well as obligations to provide insurance to support an indemnity obligation. These provisions, which are included in almost every contract in areas ranging from oil and gas operations to intellectual property, amount to a "pre-nuptial agreement" between the parties that will govern what happens if there is a dispute between them or a claim or suit by a third party. This presentation will provide real-world advice on potential pitfalls and limitations in these contract provisions and on how to overcome them if possible.
