  • Can you contract out of some or all of the prevention principle?
  • Balancing risk on contractor caused with principal caused delays
  • Dealing with excusable and non-excusable delay
  • Extension of time when acts of prevention align with concurrent delay events
  • The importance of clear drafting to address application of force majeure clauses
  • Drafting clauses for the obligation of reasonable endeavors
  • Correct operation of liquidated damages in a termination
