What is a Force Majeure clause?
In essence this clause allows a party to the contract to stop/alter parties to perform the contract fully or to stop them performing the contract partly. This can include delay, applying for a time extension or delay in performing certain obligations, impacting supply chains and payments that are due to either the party within the agreement or to creditors.
Just because a Force Majeure clause is in place does not guarantee that it can be relied upon in every situation. These clauses are often drafted in different ways meaning that the parties to the contract can only rely upon the Force Majeure contract in certain situations. This is where our experts can carefully examine your contract and advise you on whether or not a Force Majeure clause can be relied upon.
