Florida Governor Rick Scott recently signed legislation making a significant chan Rick Scottge to the potential liability of individuals providing design professional services in the state. The new law, which takes effect July 1, 2013, will enable a business entity to contractually limit the liability of its individual professionals to the extent of that professional’s scope of work performed under the contract. In other words, the individual design professional can now immunize himself for liability in design or project administration. The design firm remains potentially liable.
