Covid 19 raises a number of issues on contracts, including frustration and force majeure, which are especially important when these contracts are the lifeline of a business.
Through the Cabinet Office, the government recently published its guidance on responsible contractual behaviour in the performance and enforcement of contracts impacted by the Covid-19 emergency. Some businesses have business interruption insurance policies, but insurers are not always paying out as they should be. Our commercial litigation law experts who will provide you with advice on the latest developments, including on the case brought by the Financial Conduct Authority against several insurers over their interpretation of insurance terms. We will also look at how to be tactically astute, as well as how to mediate online in the socially-distant commercial world we occupy.
