Join Parker Poe Attorneys & Counselors at Law in discussing how to navigate Commercial Contracts and other force majeure topics during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The pandemic has already caused massive business disruptions that are affecting the rights and obligations of all parties involved in a wide variety of commercial contracts. In this webinar, Parker Poe will discuss whether and under what circumstances a party may have the right to delay, alter, or cancel its performance obligations under a commercial contract as a result of the impacts of COVID-19 and related governmental closure and stay-at-home orders.

The following will be addressed:

  • Force majeure contract clauses
  • Common law defenses of impossibility and frustration of purpose
  • Rights of a seller of goods under UCC Section 2-615, Excuse by Failure of Presupposed Conditions
  • What we have learned and the effect on future contracts
