What is a force majeure clause?

A force majeure clause is a contractual provision that deals with the consequences of a specific event occurring (a ‘force majeure event’) which prevents the parties from performing their contractual obligations.

What is a ‘force majeure event’?

A ‘force majeure event’ is an event outside the parties’ control. The parties have the freedom to determine how they would like to define a force majeure event. A force majeure clause will often include a definitive list of events that would constitute a force majeure event, for example global pandemics, which Coronavirus / Covid-19 would be classified as.
