Navigating Heightened Contractual Risk in an Economic Downturn

Navigating Series Background Decorative Image

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 details on our first program.

This presentation will go 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 will be 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.
