Special focus – Planning for Turmoil

Sanctions, currency devaluation, austerity measures, insurgencies and State military intervention are a 'sign of the times' but they may have immediate and substantial impact on the ability of contracting parties to perform trading agreements or their profitability.  This session will focus on the law of force majeure and frustration and consider how parties may look to protect themselves in their dealings from the impact of these 'macro' influences.

Speaker: Michael Lazarus, Barrister - 3 Verulam Buildings
