Frustration. If there is no force majeure clause, then the only way an affected party can avoid legal liability is through the legal concept of frustration. This requires a party to show that it is either physically or commercially impossible to perform a contract due to a supervening event that has occurred since the contract was concluded through no fault of the affected party.
The concept of frustration needs to be distinguished from force majeure:
Taking Action. Before a party asserts that it is entitled to claim force majeure or frustration, it needs to have a detailed understanding of all the background facts and details of the contract. Otherwise, an assertion of force majeure or frustration could be wrong with the result that the party making the claim is itself in breach of the contract, entitling the other party to terminate and claim damages arising as a result of that breach.
