If during the first waves of the coronavirus it could be considered force majeure in contracts, now it is no longer the case, lawyers said on the radio show “Lindeberg Law Radio”.

This time the program was attended by sworn advocate Aldo Vassar and lawyer Kardo Karon. The program talked in more detail about breaches of contractual obligations – supply problems, price increases, etc.

In addition, force majeure and the regulation of changes in the relationship between contractual obligations provided for in the Law of Obligations Act were also discussed. The lawyers stated that business failures related to COVID could no longer be considered as force majeure.

The show was hosted by Hando Sinisalu.
