Addressing Payments Defaults and Flow of Funds Difficulties during the COVID-19 Crisis

David Brynmor Thomas QC will be speaking at this webinar, hosted by Volterra Fietta, as part of a panel of experts on the 25th November at 1.30pm (BST).

The COVID-19 pandemic has had significant global consequences on all manner of commercial expectations, both small and large.  This includes frustrating expected sales, cash flows and other flow of funds, thereby hindering the ability to make timely payments that were the foundation of significant commercial and industrial relationships.  Many contracting Parties have chosen to address these difficulties in an amicable manner, by means of contractual settlement.  Nevertheless, unfortunately, litigious and arbitration disputes have emerged from these difficulties.  Whether as a matter of amicable settlement or dispute resolution, valuation experts are now routinely called on to assess the damages caused by these issues during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The speakers will discuss how contracting commercial parties should consider and assess the various impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on payment obligations and flow of funds issues.

If you would like to join the panel in this discussion, please RSVP by noon on Monday, 23 November 2020 with your name and affiliation to attend@volterrafietta.com. You will receive the dial-in details before the seminar.
