Contracts Expert Witnesses

In any disaster or pandemic scenario, contracts become a major topic of dispute. Terms cannot be fulfilled, binding agreements are abandoned, and once-united parties must make alternative arrangements. For upcoming contract-related litigation, it will be necessary to consult a contract expert witness to opine on the terms and conditions of broken contractual agreements in the midst of a public health crisis.

A contract expert witness can discuss:

  • Contract types impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Force majeure clauses
  • Arbitration clauses
  • Impossibility of performance of an obligation
  • Material change of circumstances
  • State-specific laws offering payment or other contractual protections
  • Impact of civil authority on contractual obligations
