Dispute Resolution Question Time will explore the legal ramifications from the COVID-19 outbreak and getting to grips with Force Majeure.

Our expert panel of construction lawyers will debate how the rapid development of COVID-19 is causing disruption to supply chains globally, and raising major concerns for all stakeholders in the construction industry.

The webinar will also entail how contractors can manage Force Majeure risks from possible payment delays and cost overruns as a result of the pandemic.

There are also limited speaking opportunities available, so if you are a construction lawyer and would like to join our panel of experts, please contact saraswati.agarwal@itp.com / +971 52 895 2214.
