Program Summary

Session I - The Basics of Indemnity Law – Matthew S. LaBeau

One of the primary concerns when a defendant is sued in litigation is damage exposure.

Accordingly, it is important to become familiar with indemnity law, and evaluate whether indemnity will afford an opportunity to defer the exposure. This presentation will examine the various types of indemnity and the circumstances they apply with real world examples.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • When indemnity may be available
  • The types of indemnity that may be utilized
