Hold Harmless Agreement En Espanol

However, as opposed, some jurists point out that there are differences between the concepts and hold harmless that indicate that they cannot always be considered synonymous. This is reflected in Mellinkoff`s Dictionary of American Legal Usage and indicates that, although compensation is generally used as a synonym for Hold Harmless, it may also, in some cases, indicate reimbursement for any damages. Ken Adams also cites some court decisions along the same lines, for example. B that of the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in United States v. Contract mgmt, Inc. (United States v. Contractmt, Inc., 912 F.2d 1045, 1048. 9th Cir. 1990). Therefore, if we find the verb indemnified in one of these clauses that are used to oblige one party to compensate the other for the concrete damages actually suffered (incurred), we propose to translate it into compensation, reimbursement or compensation. Let`s take an example of this use: Link: The inclusion of one or more concepts in a clause depends on what you hope for.

The terms “compensation” and “hold harmless” are often unclear, even to Anglo-Saxon lawyers themselves, who often use them on an equal footing. The lawyers (we) are in favor of specifying the more you need, the better. I leave them the link below. I found the distinction between “compensation” and “harmless hold” particularly interesting. In this context, we must not confuse the concept of compensation with the verb “compensation” or with the name “compensation”. As the American jurist Ken Adams points out on his blog “Adams on Contract Drafting”, “A shall indemnise B” means “A will be liable to B”. That is, A responds to B for something and releases B from any responsibility for that something; in the case of clauses we review regarding costs or damages resulting from their non-compliance or negligence. Among Anglo-Saxon jurists, it is generally permissible to identify the meaning of the two verbs to enpenify and to hold harmless. Even black`s Law Dictionary identifies these terms by treating them as synonyms and defining them as follows: “X wants to compensate, keep indemnisant et hold harmless (on a full enpendity basis) Y against all costs, expenses and losses that Y incurs as a result of a breach of X`s obligations” Solo comentar que el nombre de la sociedad exonerada de responsabilidad suele figur en front del adjetivo “harmless”, In this way, what I find interesting (in my previous comment) about “hold harmless” is: Hello, I would like to know how serious the translation of “indemnification clauses” would be because it is not as clear as it is in Spanish. Regarding this entry, I would like to tell you that I came across a very interesting article in English that tries to explain the nuances between “compensation”, “harmless hold” and “defensive”, which appear exactly together in a contract that I translate.

Each Party undertakes to release and hold harmless the other Party and its employees, members, country masters, successors and assignees from any and all claims, liabilities, losses, damages and expenses resulting from negligence, wilful misconduct and the performance or non-performance of its obligations or obligations under this Agreement. . . .
