This is Not Another Covid-19 Force Majeure Talk. Join us for a seminar where our speakers Kelvin and Joanna discuss the law behind commonly-seen excuses for not performing the contract. They will discuss clauses which allow the contractor to escape the consequences of not carrying out the contract, including the implications of extensions of time and force majeure clauses and frustration. They will delve into issues such as when is weather “exceptionally” adverse, when is government delay a ground for EOT and who is the “governmental authority”, when do illegal acts justify non-performance, and when does a disease become an “outbreak”— things and factors often encountered in construction projects which have the potential to significantly impact the progress of works. This seminar, which will address issues faced by employers, contractors, consultants, and other professionals, comes at an opportune time, given the increasingly complex and challenging world that we live in. Gain insights into navigating contractual complexities and mitigating risks associated with these challenges.
