INTERLAW LIVE: Contracts in a Crisis: Managing Commercial Relationships During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Interlaw ensures professional development is at the forefront of our organization and hosts quarterly network-wide meetings to discuss topical issues and latest legal innovations. Additionally, relations between our strategic partners are further enhanced through regular workshops, receptions, professional congresses and informal 'meet ups'.

The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting every corner of business across the world, putting particularly acute pressure on commercial relationships of all kinds. Amid disrupted supply chains, factory closures, event cancellations and personnel being forced into new working arrangements, businesses are increasingly mindful of the need to act quickly to understand their contractual obligations and limit the impact on the sustainability and profitability of their operations.

To help businesses and general counsel successfully navigate the crisis, colleagues across Interlaw Latin America have assembled an expert panel of our specialist commercial contract lawyers to provide clear guidance and practical advice on all aspects of contract law.

From questions over force majeure clauses and claiming compensation, through to insurance provisions and business continuity obligations, our legal specialists will address the most significant issues facing businesses looking to get to grips with their contractual obligations and plan for the short, medium and longer term.

Example of the topics we will cover include:   

  • Understanding force majeure;
  • Alternatives when seeking to mitigate damages;
  • Suspending and terminating contracts;
  • Addressing new commercial relationships in a crisis.    

Join us for an interactive, insightful session, (in English) which will provide invaluable actionable insights for businesses and general counsel looking to understand their current obligations and put in place contracting strategies to see them through this 'once in a generation’ crisis.
