“One long-term issue arising from COVID-19 will be future litigation resulting from the invoking of force majeure clauses,” said Roger M. Yaffe, CEO of USLAW NETWORK.

In USLAW NETWORK’s newly released COVID-19 Force Majeure Compendium of Law, Karen Tobin seeks to provide an Illinois exemplar on relevant considerations with respect to invoking “force majeure” clauses in contracts in light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. This compendium provides further guidance and focuses on issues such as the requirement to obtain relief using force majeure and the possible scope of that relief.
