WSG member firm, Dykema, hosted a 60-minute webinar on Force Majeure and Manufacturing in the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic has raised issues of force majeure in a wide range of businesses, prominently including manufacturing, where parties are encountering sharp disruptions both as buyers and as sellers. The pandemic also differs fundamentally from the "usual" sort of force majeure event, in that it is global and persistent. These differences have implications for the effects of the event, the legal and practical positions of clients, and the options for management of disruptions to maintain working relationships where possible and optimize the client's position in the event of a dispute.

This program covered:

  • The basic domestic and international law of force majeure and related doctrines
  • The practical differences between "classic" force majeure events and the current pandemic
  • The implications of these differences for the application of force majeure law
  • Options for effective and efficient management and resolution of manufacturing disruptions
