Join ACC Chicago and Taft Law to look into the forces of price, availability, labor, and other issues highlighted by the Covid-19 pandemic during “Supply Chain Woes: Effectively Using Your Contract’s Terms and the UCC to Navigate Through Them” on July 13 in Chicago and July 20 in Oakbrook.
As the global economy emerges from pandemic shutdowns and slowdowns and into inflation and market insecurity, supply chains across the globe continue to suffer delays and cost impacts. Companies responding to supply chain disruptions will find that their obligations, rights, and remedies largely depend on specific contractual language. A carefully crafted (or renegotiated) contract and an appropriate, timely response when issues arise can help your organization avoid or mitigate issues within its supply chain.
Presenters John Riccione, Bill Serritella, Brianna Skelly, and Elizabeth Winkowski will consider contract enforcement, renegotiation, and termination in the post-pandemic era of supply chain disruption. They will identify and discuss some leading practices to help inform your organization’s decision-making during these trying times.
