COVID-19 Emerging Risks for Resumption of Commercial Business Operations
As the disruption caused by COVID-19 changes virtually on a daily basis, and various Governors permit businesses to re-open before effective remedies or a vaccine are readily available, the legal landscape facing these businesses across all segments of the economy are also evolving. This CLE discusses the traditional legal duty of commercial property owners/operators and the challenges presented during an unprecedented Pandemic, to ensure they adequately address the emerging risks within the ambit of their duty. There will be a case study on a specific non-essential business/industry with insight on the myriad of legal issues implicated by the resumption of business activity in this environment.
