Contracting compass – indemnities balancing commerciality and risk

Wednesday, 03 May 2017
8:00 am – 9:30 am

We have teamed up with Brodies to offer our next technical CPD event.

The oil and gas industry operates within a high risk, high cost environment making indemnity regimes core to every oil and gas contract. Agreeing how to allocate risk between the parties can be a challenge so it is essential that you understand risks, what the words mean and how to properly draft and construct an indemnity article.

This seminar will take a practical approach on how to navigate the complex contractual landscape without getting lost in the language.

Learning objectives:

By attending this event delegates will be able to identify:

• The ‘five questions’ required to construct an effective clause;

• Tools to draft a clear working indemnity regime; and

• A critical view of the approach of the Courts to indemnities.

To register visit:
