Duty to Defend Cast Studies Needed

20 May 2022 4:21 PM | PLSO Office (Administrator)

ACEC Oregon, AIA Oregon and PLSO are collecting information on the impacts of Duty to Defend clauses in many Oregon public contracts for design professionals. 

In order to move forward with legislation during the 2023 session, we were asked to provide more information on harm caused by the contract requirements.

As a reminder, PLSO has been supporting the intent on ending the inclusion of duty to defend clauses in public and private agreements. This duty to defend clause is onerous as it requires the design professional be responsible to defend an owner or other party against claims asserted by a third-party even if the design professional is not negligent. 

We need your help! If your firm has an example of dealing with Duty to Defend please click on the Submit Case Study button below and complete the electronic form by Thursday, June 2.
