Re: Limit of liability

My understanding of LOL is that it will not hold up in court if the client
who signed the agreement does not have the sophistication to understand the
implications.  This means that for an architect, the LOL would probably
hold up.  However, for a owner, it may not.  One way to improve your
chances is to document negotiations and/or to have a line to initial at the
bottom of your contract which states that the client understands what the
LOL is and that it was negotiated.

The courts just don't want to see people hoodwinked by fast-talking
consultants.
