The idea behind Law B4 Lunch: we are all busy, so Law B4 Lunch looks at a single topic, states the essentials, and stops after 20 minutes (or less). Then we all go and get our lunches - or you can stay behind for Q&A if you want, it's up to you.
This time I am looking at CONTRACTUAL INDEMNITIES. They are everywhere in contracts these days, but few lawyers can tell you what the advantage is over a straight breach of contract claim. For example, what does "save and hold harmless" really mean? What does it mean to "defend and hold harmless" - is it better to add "defend"? Why are we seeing the addition of "on demand" and what does that mean?
All will be explained ...
