Growing up in the 70s, I became a big fan of the original Star Wars trilogy, so I have my Darth Vader mug with me at all times in my office. One of the business topics that has become popular in the COVID19 environment is Force Majeure. May the Force Majeure be with you is our little joke, but Force Majeure is not a joke because it is an essential tool of a contract that you can use to excuse performance if unforeseen circumstances arise. Exercising the Force Majeure clause of an agreement would prevent business owners from being penalized for being unable to perform under the contract.  The COVID19 business environment is a great time to review all of your contracts and agreements for these types of clauses.


Please watch the video below for valuable tips on how to take advantage of the Force Majeure clause of a contract.  Stay tuned for more videos about Force Majeure and business contracts.
