Each party agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the other party from and against any liabilities (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses) and claims for commissions and fees arising out of its breach of the foregoing representation.

7.Ratification of Lease. The undersigned parties hereby ratify and reaffirm their rights and obligations under the Lease as modified by this Amendment.
