As COVID-19 (Coronavirus) continues to exact a human toll, it is also disrupting economies and supply chains. When do such disruptions excuse contract performance? How can you protect your contracts and mitigate your risks? Drawing on U.S. case law involving Avian Flu and other contagions, Dan and Shevon take a look at force majeure and other related doctrines, including impossibility, frustration of purpose, and commercial impracticability to help answer these questions.

Dan Brown is a Partner in Dorsey’s Minneapolis Commercial Litigation group specializing the Agricultural Biotechnology and Risk Management and Insurance. Shevon Rockett is a Partner in Dorsey’s New York Commercial Litigation group specializing in Products Liability Litigation.
