Overview (Program Summary)

Join ACC Chicago and Taft Law to find out what “Force Majeure” and “uninhabitable” means during COVID-19. Our presenters will cover the topic of force majeure provisions in commercial contracts, 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. The interactive session will include time for your questions and hopefully answer the question of whether you can indeed stop paying rent.
