Broadcast Date: Friday, January 29, 2021 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm (ET)
This webinar will cover the topic of force majeure provisions in commercial contracts, with a focus on real estate, the “test” for whether force majeure can be invoked, and steps that parties may take to safeguard their positions in view of the continually evolving situation. This interactive session will include time for your questions and, hopefully, answer the question of whether a tenant can, indeed, stop paying rent.
