Business Partnership Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Sep 29, 2023

Indemnity clause in business partnership agreement?

I am in the process of forming a business partnership with a colleague, and we are currently in the process of drafting a contract. We both have agreed on most of the terms, but I am unsure about the indemnity clause. I am not sure what should be included in this clause and I want to ensure that both parties are protected in the event of a dispute.

Indemnity clauses (also known as "indemnification clauses") are rather common in business contracts, including formal Partnership Agreements. The general purpose of an indemnity clause is to protect the indemnified party against a claim, including a lawsuit, by a third party or another party. While the clause might not be extremely detailed, the terms and conditions of an indemnity clause should clearly and accurately reflect the parties' understanding and intent. Someone who has questions or concerns about an indemnity clause, including in a Partnership Agreement, should consider consulting with a knowledgeable attorney before signing.
