This thought-provoking article underscores the often overlooked yet profoundly important aspect of estate planning – the ethical will or legacy letter – adding depth and significance to the process of passing down not just assets, but personal values and wisdom.
This eye-opening article offers a comprehensive overview of the significant changes in Australian Employment Law for 2023, emphasizing the potential impact on businesses and employees and highlighting the need for adaptability and compliance in this evolving landscape.
A force majeure clause is a method of allocating the risk of a disruptive event. It is a broad catch-all provision whereby the parties list categories or specific instances of otherwise frustrating events, together with the party or parties to bear the risk of the event occurring.
The clause can also grant options to vary, suspend or terminate the contract to one or more of the parties. 
Force majeure clauses form part of a contract’s express terms, subject to the conventional methods of construction.
Absent a force majeure clause, it is unlikely a contract’s commercial purpose would suggest that such a provision is so apparent that it goes without saying , meaning a court is likely to refuse to imply it.
