Women’s Wedding Network
COVID-19, Contracts, and Force Majeure Clauses: Contracts are a normal, yet important, part of any business. But are your contracts covering everything they need to be? If your contract isn’t covering things like refunds, rescheduling, deposits vs retainers and Force Majeure, you should be aware of the importance of these items to your business and why they need to be included. Our speaker for the June 10 webinar will be Jason Hickman, from Compton & Duling LC. He will review these issues and answer your questions.
