Force Majeure and Other Contractual Issues in a COVID-19 World

– Risk Management Magazine
Litigation partner Emil Petrossian authored an article for Risk Management Magazine outlining the fundamental aspects of force majeure clauses every company should be aware of in light of COVID-19. In the article, Petrossian breaks down what force majeure means, how force majeure clauses are likely to be applied in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, and some of the requirements a company seeking to invoke force majeure must meet. He also discusses some of the options available to companies with contracts that don’t contain force majeure clauses, as well as alternative defenses companies should consider if they cannot invoke force majeure.
