How to Avoid Risks in Customer Agreements and Supply Chains during Covid-19
Date: Thursday 9 April 2020
Time: 14:00 – 15:00
AMF partner, Ward Hadaway will be delivering a FAQ webinar session focussed on avoiding risks with customer agreements and supply chains during Covid-19.
About this Event
Ward Hadaway will cover some of the key FAQs they have been asked as one of the North East’s largest full service law firms.
Some common questions that will be covered include:
- Can force majeure excuse me or my suppliers from paying on time?
- What are the risks to my business if I can’t perform on time due to Covid-19?
- What will happen to my contracts if the Government takes steps to require me to close down my facility?
Typically, businesses are looking to either consider whether they have any scope to get out of, or reduce, commitments under their contracts to customers because of Covid-19. or consider any risks to their supply chain from Covid-19 where suppliers have notified them that they may be unable to or will be delayed in providing goods/materials.
The webinar will consist of a brief introduction from AMF chairman, Ian Fawdon, followed by an introduction and presentation session from Ward Hadaway. The webinar will provide insight on considerations from a contract perspective on how to assess customer contracts and supply contracts, as well as how to respond to any notices from suppliers.
This session is encouraged to be Q&A orientated and Ward Hadaway invite you to submit your questions prior to the event so that they can answer these during the session. Live questions will also be taken during the webinar sessions.
The webinar session will be approximately 45 minutes – 1 hour with Q&A encouraged throughout.
Your webinar link and information on where to send questions will be included in the signup email you receive from Eventbrite upon registration.
