Tuesday, December 1, 2020 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Description:

The BBA presents live webinars and virtual events via Zoom. Please register for this program through your BBA account at least two hours before the start time of the program to receive the Zoom webinar link. 

Ever since Covid-19 began spreading across the United States in early 2020, parties to a variety of business and commercial contracts have been testing the limits of their force majeure clauses, as well as the related common law defenses of impossibility, impracticability, and frustration of purpose, to try to excuse their contractual performance.

Please join us for a panel discussion about the initial court decisions in Massachusetts, and across the country, to evaluate the applicability and validity of these contract defenses to Covid-19 and its regulatory fallout.
