We’re excited to introduce Navigating, a new webcast series created to assist clients and friends of the firm in navigating the new normal – whether that be navigating through pandemic-related issues, new industry dynamics, or rapidly changing social, legal and business norms. Here are the event resources for our first program.

This presentation goes beyond basic interpretations of contractual issues such as force majeure clauses or determinations of what constitutes a material adverse change to provide tips and strategies for assessing risk related to contractual renegotiations or exits. Our analysis is applicable to contracting parties across industries but will be particularly pertinent to energy companies with minimum volume commitments, E&P companies with numerous contracts related to a major project, and parties to incomplete mergers or acquisitions.

This presentation was recorded and current as of May 28, 2020. Content viewed after this date may no longer be current.
