Brumitt Delivers Presentation to American Subcontractors Association

January 10, 2018

Lee Brumitt delivered a presentation to the American Subcontractors Association (ASA) on Jan. 9 entitled, "Indemnity and Hold Harmless."

He discussed indemnification and hold harmless provisions, how subcontractors can limit exposure to such provisions, how state laws may impact such provisions, and the key issues involved in assuring that subcontractors have adequate insurance coverage to absorb risks they might agree to assume. 

"The most important contract issue facing subcontractors is the extent to which risks inherent in the construction process—property damage, personal injury, liquidated damages, design or construction defects, etc.—are transferred from the upper tiers to subcontractors," said Brumitt.
