Many businesses are or will be dealing with difficult questions surrounding the performance of contracts during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether a business is concerned that it will be unable to perform its obligations under an existing agreement or is expecting one of its counterparties to fail to perform, a thorough analysis of existing agreements and any force majeure clauses they may contain is essential to understanding the ability to suspend contractual performance. This webinar will review the origins of force majeure clauses, their typical terms, how they are construed by the courts, and their likely impact moving forward.
