The COVID-19 pandemic has not only given rise to new challenges and opportunities for the Court system, it has also raised unprecedented questions for clients and their advisors about commercial obligations in light of the new temporary COVID-19 Omnibus legislation and associated Regulations.
This presentation will address the following topics:
Courts : how the different Courts are responding to the challenge and capitalising on the opportunity to bring about harmonisation and reforms;
Temporary new laws: The impact on contracts of the COVID-19 Omnibus Act and Regulations;
The doctrine of frustration: the extent to which it may be triggered by COVID-19 and the consequences if it is;
Force Majeure clauses: the extent to which they may be triggered by COVID-19, and the potential consequences if they are.
