Construction disputes – Covid-19


With the global construction industry feeling significant impact from the restrictions in place due to the current situation with Covid-19, in particular the suspension of works and closure of sites as well as supply chain issues and financial pressures, we are helping our clients avoid potential contentious issues and looking at how we can help them to mitigate the impact of coronavirus on a wide variety of projects.

Many clients have been asking us about the impact of Covid-19 on their contractual rights and obligations and we have been advising on these issues and whether "force majeure" is the catch all "relevant event" everyone would like it to be, and on the consequences of the failure  contractually where both parties may be innocent of any default.

Please do contact us if you need advice and support.
