Construction Contracts and Indemnification

By Mark Cobb

One of the great things about being a construction lawyer is the terrific network of colleagues and contacts we have across the country.  Organizations such as the American Bar Association (ABA)’s Forum on the Construction Industry, the Associated General Contractors (AGC) and the American Subcontractor’s Association (ASA) help us meet and regularly interact with our counterparts in other parts of the county; social media outlets such as FaceBook, LinkedIn and Twitter connect us with even more professionals.  Today, I read a great blog article written by William D. Goren, an attorney focusing and consulting on the American with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The lawsuit discussed in Mr. Goren’s article involves a hotel construction project in which the finished project failed to comply with the ADA.  Consequently, the project owner sued the general contractor under an indemnification provision contained in the original construction contract.  Please check out the article to see if you agree with the holding or learn how to better shore up your construction contracts.  To read the article by Mr. Goren, please click here > >
