The COVID pandemic has had a monumental impact on businesses and consumers alike from real estate deals to corporate transactions. This informative CLE will re-visit the often afterthought force majeure clause and help practitioners understand when it may apply, the steps to take and when other defenses or provisions may be more effective. This course will also provide helpful drafting tips for contracts going forward as we continue to navigate uncertain waters.
