Trying to manage the effect of Coronavirus on your business contracts?

17 March 2020

We are helping many businesses and organisations deal with the impact of coronavirus, especially as to “force majeure”, frustration and related issues.

Coronavirus and force majeure clauses

Coronavirus is playing havoc with supply chains, events, M&A deals and employment contracts and causing a host of other legal issues. It will lead to many disputes unless the issues are handled skilfully.

We advise businesses as well as schools and charities how to respond to most challenges or disputes in relation to their contracts, and we are ready to help you.
