In many commercial endeavors, such as installing new production lines, constructing new buildings or transporting goods, the risk of injury or property damage is present. Companies understandably want to limit their exposure to such risks.  Two common devices utilized to manage such risks are (1) indemnification agreements and (2) agreements to procure “additional insured” insurance coverage. These tools, while undeniably useful, also present challenges for attorneys and business owners during the drafting process.   More on Drafting Effective Contractual Risk Transfer Provisions Here>
In Triple H Family L.P. v. Jerry Neal , C.A. No. 12294-VCMR (Del. Ch. July 31, 2018), the Delaware Court of Chancery held that the member-manager of Omni Insurance Group, LLC (“Omni”) breached his fiduciary duties to the company when he misled Omni’s largest customer about lapses in the customer’s insurance coverage. Additionally, the court held that although the other member of Omni owed fiduciary duties to Omni as a de facto manager, that member did not breach his fiduciary duties when he directed business away from Omni after the parties had already agreed to dissolve.   More on Court Decision Here>
