Alan S. Pralgever, a partner in the firm’s Litigation Department, will be a presenter at a live webinar on “COVID-19 and Its Impact on Business Litigation,” on Wednesday, June 10, 2020 from 12:00pm – 2:00pm. The program will be sponsored by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education.
The nation has been negotiating COVID-19 issues for several weeks. On the business front, the intent of many contracts and the ability of parties to deliver under contracts has been severely impacted by the virus. The effect the virus has had on businesses seems unsurmountable, and new issues continue to arise. So, what commercial litigation cases are being filed and what cases can we expect to arise as a result of the coronavirus?
This webinar features a panel of NJ commercial litigation attorneys who will address issues of force majeure, abatement, terminations of agreements and employment issues and then draw their attention to some additional intricate issues that their clients are currently facing. Topics to be addressed include:
- Does the pandemic excuse performance?
- Do you have a right to terminate a contact because of the virus?
- What if it is impossible to perform under a contract?
- How do you proceed if your supplier cannot deliver?
- What about customers who seek to cancel contracts?
- Does your contract provide for limitations of liability?
- How much accommodation need be given? (i.e., extension of time, good faith dealings)
Mr. Pralgever concentrates his practice in business and commercial litigation, with a special focus in corporate, partnership and LLC split-ups and dissolutions, condominium matters and representation of associations, estate litigation, employment issues, consumer fraud act litigation, real estate and intellectual property disputes. He has handled a wide variety of complex commercial and corporate litigation in state and federal courts, as well as arbitrations in both New Jersey and New York. He is certified by the New Jersey Superior Court as a civil mediator.
