COVID-19 - The Impact upon JCT Construction Contracts
The COVID-19 pandemic has serious and long-lasting implications for current and future construction projects. Many practices are scrutinizing their contracts in order to clarify their own liabilities and those of contractors and clients.
Whether or not COVID-19 constitutes a force majeure event is a key consideration in JCT contracts, and this live broadcast will review the key questions.
What You Will Learn
This live and interactive session will cover the following:
- Can the contractor claim an extension of time in respect of COVID-19?
- Can the contractor recover loss and expense for COVID-19?
- Can either party terminate the contract because of COVID-19?
- How should you engage with the other party about COVID-19?
