Insurance Fundamentals for Leasing Attorneys

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Any well-drafted lease should function as an effective risk management tool, and insurance is therefore a critical piece to any commercial lease negotiation.  Landlords and tenants often look to their consultants when it comes to insurance matters.  But leasing attorneys also play a critical role when it comes to reviewing and negotiating these provisions, and they must have a solid grasp of the issues at hand in order to advise their clients properly and ensure that all of the lease’s insurance-related pieces fit together.  That includes not only understanding the underlying insurance obligations, but also how those requirements can have implications throughout the lease, such as in the indemnification, waiver of subrogation, construction and casualty provisions.

Our presenter, Ann Mizner McKay, is a Senior Consultant at Albert Risk, the largest independent risk management consulting firm in the U.S.  Ann brings over two decades of risk management experience across a wide range of industries to the table.  She will discuss not only the types of insurance obligations typically found in standard commercial leases and the risks those coverages are meant to address, but also some current trends and hot-button issues she is seeing that could affect the real estate industry.
