Wait.  What?  Your client has a claim on their project and they just handed you their latest attorney bill and a copy of your professional service contract’s indemnity provision?  Now what? 

Join our topic matter experts, Eric Singer, attorney with the law firm of Ice Miller LLP, and Melissa Roberts, professional liability broker with USI Insurance, for answers.  Learning how to modify the indemnity provision in your contract can be the difference between having access to your insurance policy’s power and coverage, or paying your client’s high-priced litigation team (or other claim costs) out of your own funds.  With a few easy edits, you can slash your risk and restore a fair and balanced approach to claim payments.

Learning Objectives:
1. Identify the key elements of an insurable indemnification provision
2. Hear negotiating approaches in response to unfair indemnification provisions
3. Participate in step-by-step editing of hold harmless contract language from unfavorable to favorable
4. Consider how poorly worded indemnity provisions can be used as a harmful tactic in claim negotiation
