Force Majeure Affecting Energy Transactions


On June 19th, Baker Botts lawyers Carlos Solé , Juliana Barbosa Pechincha and David Jetter, together with Mattos Filho lawyers Giovani Loss and Flavio Spaccaquerche, discussed force majeure and related contractual claims.

During the webinar, we discussed the key elements of a typical force majeure clause and how those clauses are interpreted under Brazil, U.S. and English law. There are differences, and it is important for lawyers and commercial teams working in these jurisdictions to understand these differences.

Join us for a discussion about the differences and what to expect in force majeure clauses and claims over the next 6-12 months.
