Save harmless clause

Save harmless clause – When two parties conclude a contract for some form of business partnership, they could agree that one of them will cover any debts that may arise during their relations. This is a promise that one party will cover eventual future debt which the other party owes to third parties. This type of legal security is known in some jurisdictions as “save harmless” clause. And it usually finds application in producing partnership media contracts.

Example: “About future claims, the television and the producer of the show agree about the following. The assignor will cover any debts, rising from tort claims lodged by third parties against the producer in the future. Including these related to the production”.
