COVID-19 and Force Majeure in the GCC

 

Among businesses, one of the key issues to arise from the current global situation is the fulfilment of their contractual obligations. The outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has resulted in a disturbance to trade, commerce and manufacturing due to lockdowns, quarantines, suspension of travel and cancellation of events on a global scale across all sectors. With no indication of when we will resume to operate as normal, businesses may want to consider force majeure as a legal option to mitigate the impact of the crisis on their business. This online training session that will shed light on questions emerging about contractual obligations and whether COVID-19 will constitute a force majeure event, with particular reference to the Kuwait and other GCC legal systems.
