The Top Ten Provisions of the Contract Surety’s General Indemnity Agreement (Other Than the Indemnity Provision)
Recorded On: 09/03/2020
The contract surety’s General Indemnity Agreement is the fundamental agreement establishing the contractual obligations running from the principal and indemnitors to the surety. Despite being titled the “General Indemnity Agreement”, the agreement does much more than merely creating and addressing the surety’s right of indemnification. It provides so many more important obligations that the indemnitors agree to perform in exchange for the surety considering the execution of bonds on behalf of a principal. During this NASBP Virtual Seminar, Adam Friedman of Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC will share highlights and discusses these wide-ranging obligations of the indemnitors to the surety.
