Against the backdrop of the corona pandemic, we have considered how force majeure is regarded around the world, and in particular - where our clients conduct business.
The brainchild of Tamar Krongrad, Head of Commercial Cross-Border, and Dr. Ira Ryk-Lakhman, and together with the input of our global contacts, we have gathered precise and up-to-date information on whether, in each of the following countries, there is a legal definition of force majeure, whether said definition includes epidemics and/or pandemics, and how force majeure could be proven.
While similarities exist, each country has its own "nuance to a theme," and we are glad to present you with our findings - findings which are constantly evolving during this time.
This overview includes the following countries:
- Bosnia & Herzegovina
- Costa Rica
- Czech Republic
- Hong Kong
- North Macedonia
