SOLD OUT - BBA Webinar: Contract Litigation Post-Pandemic

Wednesday, March 25, 2020 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Webinar Only - , Boston, MA


Description:

The program is sold out; however, the Boston Bar Association will make the video available on demand. Please email Stiv Mucollari at smucollari@bostonbar.org to get an alert for when the program is added to our on-demand library.

The Coronavirus pandemic is grinding commerce to a halt. Inevitably, this will lead to an increase in breach of contract cases alleging non-performance. This webinar provides an overview of the defenses that will be asserted where the failure to perform was based on the pandemic and how Massachusetts courts are likely to respond to these defenses.  Depending on the nature of the contract and the provisions agreed to by the parties, these defenses include (a) ‘force majeure’, (b) impossibility of performance, (c) commercial impracticability and (d) frustration of purpose. The webinar is offered by an experienced commercial litigator who will provide insight into these defenses and practice advice on how to assert and respond to them.
