We offer insights and commentary on meeting the challenges of this global pandemic.
The rapid spread of the coronavirus is having a far-ranging impact on people, businesses and economies worldwide. In these unprecedented times, measures are being put in place which will affect almost every aspect of our day to day lives in the short and medium term.
With global stock markets deflated, supply chains interrupted, social and sporting events cancelled and changes to working locations and patterns, it is impossible to plan ahead as normal. While the principal focus of any organisation will be on protecting the wellbeing of staff, a burgeoning number of commercial and operational challenges need to be addressed.
On this page, we have gathered together a range of briefings to help navigate this period of uncertainty – from answers to some of the difficult questions on employment law and an analysis of the potential repercussions on existing contracts and supply chains to guidance on the steps that can be taken by businesses immediately to mitigate the risk of any legal claims.
We intend to expand our hub with further insights and practical advice as this fast-moving situation evolves. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the authors of these briefings directly or to speak to your usual Penningtons Manches Cooper contact if you need support.
