Knock for knock
Join Darryl Kennard, a partner at Penningtons Manches Cooper LLP and Robert Hodge, Director, as they discuss knock-for-knock liability insurance. Knock-for-knock liability provides that each party to the contract agrees to take responsibility for, and to indemnify and hold the other harmless in respect of, death and injury to its own personnel, and loss and damage to its own property. This is intended to be effective even if the incident is caused by the negligence of the indemnified party. We hope you enjoy this latest edition.

Joint & several liability
Join Tom Irving and Matthew Offers as they discuss joint and several liability.
