The outbreak and rapid spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has roiled markets and disrupted supply chains, threatening the global economy. It is also forcing companies to confront a host of hard questions about how they can and should conduct business during a global public health crisis.
Below, we outline questions that companies and their boards should consider as they navigate this uncertain era. Many of these questions are industry-agnostic, but all companies must also address challenges specific to the industry and regulatory environment in which they operate.
Sidley has organized a multidisciplinary task force to address the wide range of regulatory, transactional, and litigation issues companies face in responding to COVID-19. To discuss the business and legal implications for your company, please contact one of the individuals below or the dedicated Sidley lawyer with whom you work.
