The building lease for Mike’s Cafe has a condition that requires Mike’s business to indemnify the landlord for all claims, damages, costs, and defense expenses arising from the cafe’s operations within the leased space. According to the agreement, Mike’s Cafe is responsible for any third-party claims against the landlord for personal harm or property damage resulting from the cafe’s operations. One day, as Daniel (a cafe patron) enters the eatery, he trips on a damaged tile and suffers a head injury. Daniel sues Mike’s Cafe and Ponzi Realty, claiming they are jointly accountable for his harm because they both knew the tile was damaged but did nothing about it. Daniel agrees to pay $125,000 to resolve the claim, and the defendants agree to equally divide the damages and claim fees. Ponzi Realty pays its portion of the expenses and then requests recovery from Mike’s Cafe, invoking the indemnification clause in the lease. Mike transmits the demand to his liability insurance company, which reimburses Ponzi Realty.

Assume that Mike’s lease compels him to indemnify Ponzi Realty for all damages caused by third-party claims originating from the cafe’s operations and to defend Ponzi Realty against such claims. To meet his contractual commitments, Mike must get a counsel to defend his landlord against Daniel’s lawsuit and cover all legal fees until the litigation is concluded. In addition, Mike must indemnify Ponzi Realty for any damages paid to Daniel.
