COVID-19 (Coronavirus): Legal implications of a global pandemic

Update July 2020

As businesses worldwide navigate the challenges brought on by the rapid spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), it is now more essential than ever that corporations be ready with solutions to address risk issues as they arise. Beyond the obvious health repercussions, this global pandemic has presented major disruptions for global businesses. Some have had direct commercial impacts on specific sectors, with interruptions to supply chains, challenges in meeting contractual obligations and implications under funding arrangements. Others are universal: workplace health and safety obligations, the impact of travel restrictions and containment measures, increased record keeping, protecting sensitive personal data and business continuity planning.

One thing has become clear: we can expect disruption for some time to come, and businesses need a legal team that can guide them through a crisis – Norton Rose Fulbright has the international reach, depth of skill and body of industry knowledge to answer that call.
