Location

WEBINAR

Date/Time

This webinar will focus on force majeure in international transactions as a result of Covid-19.  Our speakers will address how force majeure is asserted across the supply chain in international contracts; how courts assess force majeure defenses in common law and civil law jurisdictions; how force majeure or related defenses are assessed when the contract does not include a force majeure; and they will provide examples of international arbitrations in which force majeure was invoked.
