Legal Hot Topics in the Post(?) COVID Era

Thomas Fawkes and Brian Jackiw, Tucker Ellis LLC

While – hopefully – the COVID-19 pandemic is transitioning to a less disruptive endemic phase, the impacts of the pandemic on the global economy have been profound, and will continue to affect businesses for the foreseeable future. Economic impacts of the pandemic have had a similar impact on the legal landscape. During this presentation, Thomas Fawkes and Brian Jackiw will discuss some of the hot topics in law that have emerged over the past two years, including: (i) the utilization of force majeure clauses in contracts; (ii) the Paycheck Protection Program and current issues concerning PPP loan forgiveness; (iii) changes to the Bankruptcy Code, as well as the anticipated wave of bankruptcies in the post-pandemic era; and (iv) the “new normal” in the adjudication of litigation cases.
