The onset of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, at the beginning of 2020, disrupted the global economy as a result of actions by private business, employees, customers, and government regulators, taken to combat the pandemic. Events have been canceled or delayed. Contracts for goods and services have been breached. How are force majeure provisions in these contracts interpreted? What happens if a contract is silent? How should contracts be drafted or revised to prepare for a potential “second wave”?

John P. Leemhuis, Jr., Esquire, is the founder and owner of Leemhuis Legal, PLLC, a business law firm based in Northwestern Pennsylvania and the Colorado front range that represents entrepreneurs, businesses, and non-profit organizations.

Due to Gov. Tom Wolf’s COVID-19 facility restrictions, the ECBA will hold programs live when possible, via Zoom or a combination of both. The Will J. Schaaf & Mary B. Schaaf Education Center can ONLY seat 16 people. Once that limit has been reached, the remaining registrants can participate in the CLE via Zoom.

Reservations due to the ECBA office by Tuesday, August 11, 2020.
