Join the AIPN-YN US Chapter for its Breakfast Speaker Series presented as a live webinar. The moderated discussion will highlight the myriad legal issues relating to the public health crisis posed by COVID-19 (the "Coronavirus") and its ripple effects in the energy industry; such as the invocation and enforceability of force majeure clauses in contracts, practical employment matters bearing on the workforce (including travel suspensions, cancellation of meetings and conventions), negotiating commercial agreements in light of an uncertain global outlook, and risk mitigation, among other issues.

While it is still difficult to ascertain how long the Coronavirus will disrupt daily life, or whether its spread will continue, it is not too soon to identify and plan to mitigate potential risk and understand both potential liabilities and benefits of the legal landscape when responding to the Coronavirus outbreak.
