WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Indemnification provisions tend to lead to intense negotiation between parties – join this webinar on Oct. 23 to learn all you need to know about keeping your clients protected.
Indemnification provisions are commonly included in many types of agreements. These include corporate acquisitions, agreements related to the sale of a business, construction agreements, real property or other property agreements, sales of goods agreements, various agreements in which parties make representations and warranties, agreements related to directors and officers of a company, lease and lease-related agreements, confidentiality agreements, intellectual property agreements, etc. Anytime one party to a contract is looking for the agreement to include a contractual remedy in the event a certain condition occurs, an indemnification provision may be part of the means — or the means — of providing that remedy.
Because indemnification agreements are all about managing and transferring risk between the parties to an agreement and third parties, they are often the subject of intense negotiation. Indemnification provisions are a powerful way to allocate liability, and this webinar will help you ensure that you are strategically negotiating these provisions!

- The Types of Agreements in Which You Should Utilize an Indemnification Provision
