Dysart Taylor is pleased to announce director Lee Brumitt recently presented on the scope of contractual clauses in construction indemnification disputes at a May 25 virtual seminar. Brumitt presented as part of all-day National Business Institute (NBI) seminar, Construction Law: Advanced Issues and Answers, an advanced guide to complex construction law issues in Missouri.
In his presentation, Indemnification Disputes – What is the Scope and Meaning of the Contractual Clause, Brumitt outlined the various types of indemnity clauses, how to detect illegal and unenforceable language, how courts construe indemnity clauses, factoring in Missouri’s anti-indemnification statutes, and how to determine duty to defend.
More than 35 years into his practice, Brumitt focuses his practice in construction law and litigation, representing owners, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and design professionals on public, commercial and residential projects.
