Force Majeure Clause
The Force Majeure Clause is one of a number of standard clauses that can be used to draft a new contract or to amend/improve an existing contract. A force majeure clause relieves a party of its obligations under the contract temporarily if an event beyond the reasonable control of that party prevents it from carrying out the relevant obligations. In more extreme cases, where the event prevents performance beyond a certain time period, a force majeure clause can make it possible for the contract to be terminated. Both short and long-form versions of the clause are included in this document.
