Upcoming webinar: Reconciling Contractual Indemnity and the Additional Insured – The Devil is (Always) in the Details

Contracts are ubiquitous in construction projects. Prominent within these contracts are provisions for risk management. Financial risk transfer, for example, is accomplished by indemnity agreements that are backed by insurance, namely contractual liability and additional insured coverage.

Since the devil is in the details, and the devil apparently likes complications, confusion, and conflict, this webinar will attempt a “reconciliation” between the additional insured and the indemnitee by addressing some key questions:

What is the difference between an additional insured and indemnitee?

What is the difference between the protection afforded to the additional insured and that afforded to the indemnitee? What are the similarities?

How do these protections interact? Are they complementary or conflicting?

What is the specific jurisdictional law, i.e., anti-indemnity statues, and what is the impact, if any, on the validity of additional insured coverage?

What is the priority of coverage available to the additional insured and available to it as named insured on its own policy?
