Webinar on Coronavirus Covid-19 and its effects on contracts

DLA Piper arranged a webinar on the impact of coronavirus on contracts in multiple jurisdictions, emphasizing the different available options.

Supply chains are increasingly long, international and interdependent – coronavirus has brought this into the spotlight.

DLA Piper arranged on the 19th of March 2020 a webinar that will cover the client questions we’re asked and the advice we give when supply-chain contracts disruption occurs in connection to Coronavirus – focusing on the contractual issues and the COVID-19 outbreak under the laws of the UK, US, Italy, France, Germany, Poland, and China.

In the webinar, we:

  • reviewed a variety of legal (and practical) issues you should consider (including technology contracts);
  • explained the legal doctrines of frustration and force majeure, including the extent to which they can be avoided/mitigated; and
  • considered both suppliers and customer perspectives, recognizing that, in many supply chains, businesses are often both a supplier and a customer.

The webinar will be presented by an international panel of speakers from countries that are being impacted by coronavirus COVID-19 to varying degrees.

Who attended?

CEOs, CFOs, Supply Chain Directors, Sales Directors, Relationship Managers, Contract Managers, Vendor Managers, In House Counsel and those involved in:

  • managing and operating supply chains and/or routes to market for goods and services;
  • all those who will be affected by disruption to their supply chain or routes to market.
