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.
