Contractual Risk Transfer – Indemnity, Purchase of Insurance, Limitations of Liability

This session discusses risk transfer in the context of a commercial transaction and is intended to assist in-house counsel with some of the issues that should be considered when addressing risk transfer in this context. This session addresses:

  • Risk transfer through the use of indemnity and/or hold harmless provisions, focusing on the wording of such provisions and under what conditions indemnity obligations may be triggered; 
  • The process of insuring defense and indemnity obligations through insurance requirements or the use of Additional Insured endorsements, and the rewards and benefits of risk transfer through the use of such endorsements; and 
  • Limitation of liability provisions. 

– Skip Durocher & Katie Pfeifer

Key Considerations in Contracting with Government Entities
  (60 MINUTES)
What are the additional compliance obligations when contracting with local, state, and federal government entities as compared to contracting with private-sector entities? Who at your client needs to know that the work being done is for a government contract (to make sure those compliance obligations are known and met)? What are the typical steps and timeline from RFP to end of project?
– Santo Cruz & Alex Hontos


When a Contract Goes Bad, But Both Parties Still Need Each Other  (60 MINUTES)
Experienced practitioners discuss a common, tricky situation – how to move forward when a contractual relationship is on the rocks, but the parties still need to work together for the foreseeable future. How might a party negotiate its way to better – or at least acceptable – terms including when it’s the party with less leverage? How do you wind up a contract over mission critical services/products?
– Kathy Bray, Marlon D. Cush & Jessie Stomski Seim
