DLA Piper has launched a Coronavirus Resource Center (CRC) to serve as a central repository for companies across jurisdictions and industries as they deal with the issues and challenges confronting their businesses and workforces as a result of the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Since the start of the outbreak, the firm has disseminated a wide range of information, including alerts and webinars. These resources, as well as key contacts from firm offices around the world, are located in the CRC.
The materials cover a broad range of topics, including:
- Corporate Governance, Disclosure and Risk Management
- Finance, Restructuring and Transactions
- Government and Regulatory
- Insurance, Real Estate and Commercial Contracts
- Supply Chain, Manufacturing and Distribution
- Workforce and Employment
“These are challenging and uncertain times, and we are pleased to be able to deliver much needed guidance to the market through these webinars and other information on our Coronavirus Resource Center,” said John J. Gilluly III, global co-chair of DLA Piper’s Corporate practice. “ As a global organization with over 70 offices across 40 countries, we are dealing with this crisis alongside our clients all over the world.”
“The COVID-19 crisis continues to develop rapidly around the world, and we are working to ensure our clients can anticipate and plan for the legal implications of this complex situation,” said Brian Kaplan, global co-chair and US chair of the firm’s Employment practice. “We hope that by providing this information to the market that we are helping our clients and others during this period of struggle.”
