Limitation of Liability. These provisions permit one or both parties to place certain limitations on their liability for breaching the agreement of the parties. Properly written, Limitation of Liability provisions can cap a party’s legal exposure for certain conduct.
Attorneys’ Fees and Costs. In the American judicial system, a party is generally required to pay his or her own legal fees and expenses, win or lose. However, parties to a contract may, with certain limitations, require that a party who loses in a legal action brought pursuant to the agreement pay the attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by the prevailing party.
