Immediate and Just Around the Corner Issues

We are counseling clients as they navigate both immediate issues, as well as those that may impact them very shortly.  We are focused on helping them to understand the questions they need to ask with a view toward both the immediate and longer term business impacts and potential consequences. Some of the resources we have developed include:

  • Analyses of a majority of federal, state, and municipal emergency declarations and orders.  To request information for a specific jurisdiction, please email COVID-19@crowell.com.
  • Webinar Series: We are hosting a webinar series called COVID-19: Immediate and Just Around the Corner IssuesBrief programs that will provide up to the minute information on important topics.
  • Commercial Contracts Checklist: designed to assist companies when reviewing commercial contracts for provisions that are likely relevant to minimizing business disruptions and losses related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Areas in which we anticipate clients are facing immediate concerns include:

  • Government contract performance issues in the US and abroad.
  • Force majeure provisions in commercial contracts.
  • Supply chain disruption and other business continuity issues.
  • Hospital operations and capacity, patient safety, and medical supplies.
