Global businesses have implemented strategies to ensure they can continue to operate in a rapidly changing and increasingly uncertain legal and regulatory landscape. Since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, it has been increasingly clear that operational resilience and a clear strategy remain essential for organizations not only to survive, but to thrive. While protecting public health still remains the priority, many organizations continue to face challenges, including disruption to their supply chains, meeting contractual obligations, bringing people back to the workplace and implications under funding arrangements. Many of these issues need to be navigated on a cross-border basis.
This global resource hub identifies the key issues and provides practical guidance as well as innovative and strategic thinking from our lawyers around the world on the legal and regulatory challenges. Our multi-disciplinary team takes a holistic approach to risk management that spans business units, areas of law and national boundaries.
