Force Majeure clauses in the era of COVID-19
Wednesday, April 1, 2020
1:00 PM – 1:45 PM MST
The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on Force Majeure provisions. Sometimes known as Impossibility clauses or Act of God clauses, these contractual provisions appear in all kinds of contracts, from standard commercial leases and consumer warranties, to the complex agreements underlying multi-billion dollar infrastructure projects.
Join three of our lawyers as they discuss Force Majeure provisions and how they relate to the COVID-19 pandemic. Panelists will address the following questions:
- What is Force Majeure?
- Does COVID-19 trigger my Contract’s Force Majeure provision?
- What are the consequences of using Force Majeure?
- What happens if my contract does not have a Force Majeure clause?
This session will be valuable to all sectors, whether you are considering relying on a force majeure provision, anticipating that the other party to a contract will be attempting to rely on such a provision, or whether you have not even yet considered how these provisions might affect your business during this pandemic.
