What Is a Hold Harmless Clause?

A hold harmless clause is a clear legal statement indicating that an individual or enterprise will not be held liable in any way for the risk, danger, injury, or damages caused to the other party.

Key man clauses trigger anytime the executives named by the clause aren't spending enough time managing the firm's investments. This can happen if the executive:

  • Dies
  • Suffers a permanent or long-term disability
  • Spends too much time at another job
  • Quits or is fired
  • Is convicted of a serious crime

Whatever the cause happens to be, if the executive can't do his or her job, the key man clause puts investing on hold at the very least. Sometimes it means the investment firm has to end, depending on how big the firm is and how important the key person was. When this is the c
