In times of uncertainty, businesses need fully to understand contractual rights and obligations. Whether you wish to temporarily waive performance, re-negotiate contract provisions or enforce existing contractual rights, understanding the applicable legal framework and putting that together with the real world commercial context is critical.

In this webinar, we hear from Catherine Nayor from the UK, Vivian Desmonts from China and Thomas Timmins from Canada in conjuction with Nathan Platt from ACC Western Pennsylvania about the contractual hot topics in their jurisdictions. We cover the emerging trends and insights with respect to force majeure clauses, hardship and the doctrine of frustration - and touch on whether any of the lessons learned so far from the COVID-19 crisis should change the approach to contract negotiation and drafting.


The transcript for this webinar will be available shortly.
