Risk Management

 

Insurance and Indemnity

Allen Matkins advises owners, developers, contractors, and design professionals on various insurance policies and risk management programs.

We tailor project insurance requirements to cost-effectively cover the risks inherent in all construction projects. We also work with other parties and their counsel to draft and negotiate indemnity provisions that allocate risk in a clear and logical manner.

We also work with insurers and brokers to find the most cost effective way to protect clients against claims for personal injury, property damage, design and management errors and omissions, and hazardous materials handling (among other risks).

Our experience ranges from assisting with comprehensive wrap programs on public projects valued at over $1 billion to advising homeowners on insurance requirements for residential projects. We have significant experience advising clients on all types of coverage, as well as defending and prosecuting claims made on the following: 

  • Insurance wrap programs 
  • Owner-controlled insurance program (OCIPs) 
  • Contractor-controlled insurance program (CCIPs) 
  • Subcontractor default insurance 
  • General liability insurance 
  • Workers' compensation 
  • Professional errors and omissions

Surety

Allen Matkins advises owners and contractors on bid bonds, payment and performance bonds, and warranty bonds.

Our construction litigators have defended our clients and their sureties in various actions involving payment and performance claims. We have also prosecuted claims against sureties on behalf of owners and subcontractors.
