COVID-19 and Commercial Contracts – Can we get out of theirs? Can they get out of ours?

via Zoom Webinar

In this Webinar, we will discuss judicial interpretation of Acts of God, Force Majeure, and Frustration of Purpose provisions in commercial agreements. In light of how Courts have applied these doctrines, we will provide best practices for dispute resolution, negotiation, and drafting of protective contract provisions, taking into consideration the current environment of shut-downs, event cancellations, and supply chain disruption.
