COVID-19 has disrupted businesses and operations globally. Some are having to suspend or defer performance, causing a knock on effect on others, with potential severe financial consequences for all.  Proactive management of these issues and risks is key to heading off and resolving potential disputes that may arise.

In this exclusive and timely webinar specifically created for senior in-house counsel, our presenters will discuss some of the key issues to consider and practical steps to take in proactively managing COVID-19 related risks and disputes, including:

  • setting up a dedicated team to assess and address potential risks and performance breaches
  • setting up communications strategy and protocols to keep stakeholders (e.g. employees, shareholders, investors, financiers, insurers, regulators) informed
  • setting up privilege protocols to preserve confidentiality and legal privilege
  • understanding contractual rights and obligations
  • preserving, collecting and assessing relevant information and evidence and dealing with cross border transfers
  • finding alternatives to strict performance
  • mitigating losses
  • preparing to and communicating with counter-parties and exploring solutions
  • planning for the future
