undertake the defense thereof with counsel reasonably satisfactory to such indemnified party, and, after notice from the indemnifying party to the indemnified party of its election so to assume and undertake the defense thereof, the indemnifying party shall not be liable to the indemnified party under this Section for any legal expenses subsequently incurred by the indemnified party in connection with the defense thereof other than reasonable costs of investigation and of liaison with counsel so selected; provided, however, that if the defendants in any such action include both parties and the indemnified party shall have reasonably concluded that there may be reasonable defenses available to them which are different from or additional to those available to the indemnifying party or if the interests of the indemnified party reasonably may be deemed to conflict with the interests of the indemnifying party, the indemnified party shall have the right to select a separate counsel and to assume such legal defenses and otherwise to participate in the defense of such action, with the reasonable expenses and fees of one such separate counsel and other reasonable expenses related to such participation to be reimbursed by the indemnifying party as incurred.
