Force Majeure: COVID-19

Previously Recorded on April 2, 2020

As the country responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, life sciences companies as well as manufacturers that do not normally produce medical devices are coming together to fill the vast gaps in availability of supplies of critical medical equipment.  As a result, many manufacturers are grappling with questions about their newly expanded products liability risk profiles.

In this special edition webinar series, Medmarc defense panel member, Jordan Lipp, Managing Member, Childs McCune, will lead discussions on two topics critical to products liability risk mitigation.

This session we look at force-majeure clauses and how this frequently overlooked contractual language can be utilized should the pandemic interrupt your business operations.
