Updated Information August 18, 2020

Key Issues to Consider as Businesses Continue to Navigate the Pandemic?
As the pandemic continues with no clear resolution on the horizon, businesses must continue to revamp and reinvent their day-to-day operations to comply not only with a wide variety of new regulations, but also legal implications from existing laws and regulations. Often, these issues are overlapping and involve more than one area of law. Our COVID-19 Task Force has put together a list of issues for companies to consider as they move forward including:

  • Employment and Benefits
  • Real Estate
  • Corporate
  • Liability Mitigation
  • Communication Plans
  • Policy and Regulatory Advocacy
