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).
