Request a Confirmation Letter or Advice Regarding Force Majeure
In the current emergency situation where restrictions have a significant impact on economic activities, many companies find it difficult or even impossible to fulfil their contractual obligations. It is probable that in many cases an entrepreneur can rely on force majeure in which case breach of obligations is excusable.
LAWYERS OF THE CHAMBER HELP ENTREPRENEURS IN THE CASE OF FORCE MAJEURE IN TWO WAYS:
- We give advice, if in our opinion, an entrepreneur can rely on force majeure or not. If it is possible, we help entrepreneurs in taking measures for using the force majeure provision.
- We issue letters of confirmation on the circumstances related to force majeure. If a contractual partner requests a confirmation from a third party regarding the circumstances related to force majeure, we will issue the respective confirmation if there is evidence to confirm the respective circumstances.
First hour of legal counselling is free of charge for the members of the Chamber and each following hour costs €50 to which value added tax will be added. If an entrepreneur is not a member of the Chamber of Commerce, the hourly price is €100, to which value added tax will be added. At least an hour should be considered for issues related to force majeure. In more complicated cases, the time required may be longer.
