LEEDing Ladies – Episode 2: May the Force (Majeure) Be With You
Thursday, May 7, 2020
1:00 – 1:30 p.m.
As with so many things in life, construction projects do not always go as planned. In fact, sometimes there is an intervening force so great that it makes performance of a construction or design contract impossible. What happens when that occurs? How can you even tell if that’s occurred? And who will be held responsible for any losses? Join us for a discussion on force majeure provisions and how they may come into play in construction and design contracts, including as a result of COVID-19 related impacts. During this webinar, you’ll learn:
• What is a force majeure event?
• How do parties enforce force majeure provisions?
• What happens if your contract doesn’t have a force majeure provision?
Certain things in life are simply beyond our control. Join us and learn how to navigate your projects when impossibility strikes (back).
