Managing the Commercial Insurance Implications of Legal Agreements


Many corporations fail to understand that contracts are legal agreements that involve the transfer or assumption of risk and liabilities, therefore they inherently have insurance implications that must be reviewed in order to protect a company from legal action.

Binding agreements, such as purchase orders, leases, employment contracts, sales agreements, and warranties, can impose financial and legal consequences if either party breaches the terms. Contractual risk transfer clauses are one mechanism to manage these risks and consequences. But when this is not adequate, an organization’s insurance program can provide another layer of protection.

When conducted by a commercial insurance consultant, business contract review and analysis ensures that your company’s contracts and insurance policies are in compliance.
