As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many commercial parties have been reviewing their contractual arrangements to consider whether there are grounds for excusing non-performance or suspending or terminating their contracts.

Against that background we have developed a new interactive tool which is designed to assist clients and contacts of the firm in evaluating the availability of force majeure relief under English law, either in respect of a party’s own contractual obligations or those of its counterparty, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic or related circumstances.

Created using Neota Logic’s automation platform, the new tool takes the user through a series of questions relevant to their circumstances to help guide their assessment of whether force majeure relief may be available.
