About this event

Contracts, Agreements, Crisis, Force Majeure, World 2.0? 

We're in a situation that hasn't occurred in more than 100 years. We're dealing with something that is completely out of our control, was not caused by us, is not easily corrected nor cured.  What doe it all mean to all of the legal, insurance, risk management, contracts, purchase orders, and how we operate now and in World 2.0.  

We're going to be exploring these concepts and issues with Jeff Agnor and Catherine Robinson, legal experts with the Columbia and mid-Atlantic law firm of Davis, Agnor, Rapaport, and Skalny. Here are a few of the topics and questions we'll address.

What legal, contractual, risk management, insurance, and liability issues and opportunities has the crisis exposed? 

     •  Force Majeure

         ○ What is it? The principles?

         ○ It's history? Examples of how it's been used in the past.

         ○ Is it valid and enforceable in contracts and agreements? What are the implications to contracting or parties to an agreement?

         ○ How might it be enforced or used during the crisis?

    • What are the other legal risks and potential liabilities typically contained in agreements that we might not be considering?

    • How does our current situation impact the future in terms of legal and contractual performance, non-performance, liability, and risk?

    • What should we be doing now to best protect ourselves and put us in the best legal position going forward?  

    • What will World 2.0 look like from a legal perspective?

Join us on the 13th and learn everything you need to know in less than an hour.
