Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
If the lease is assigned, then the landlord takes over all rights and liabilities. That said, if the assignment has an indemnification clause, then successor can pursue assignor for coverage. The claimant then can pursue the successor who would turn to assignor for coverage/payment/defense costs etc.
