When Projects Turn South: Traps for the Unwary

Event Details


United Kingdom | July 29, 2020

When things don't quite go to plan, contractual parties usually reach to get their agreements out of the bottom drawer. Now, with a prolonged global recession ahead of us, it is more important than ever before that businesses fully understand the finer detail contained in their contracts.

During the last six months, we have looked at your key questions and tracked developments in our COVID-19 hub. We conducted a groundbreaking survey and analysis of the global spread of force majeure.

We now invite you to join us for our final webinar in this series of discussions. We look forward to helping you avoid some nasty Traps for the Unwary. This session is based on English law, but the issues are of interest to a wider audience.

  • Legal effect of termination
  • Financing considerations when things are going wrong
  • Reserving and protecting rights (affirmation and waiver)
  • Complying with notice and dispute resolution provisions
  • Other considerations: Energy Charter Treaty, BITs and Sovereign Immunity
  • NRF Covid Resolve

Our Academies are aimed at junior legal and commercial team members. This webinar is, however, relevant to stakeholders across a number of sectors including the built environment, construction, infrastructure, energy and transport.
