Covid-19 coronavirus

How to plan and respond to the legal, regulatory and commercial challenges

How should the global financial services industry and businesses across the world respond to the unprecedented legal, commercial and regulatory risks posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, its profound impact on society and disruption to the ordinary course of  everyone's personal and professional lives?  

Businesses of all types need to ensure they are across the relevant issues, have a holistic picture of their risk position and engage with stakeholders appropriately to ensure they are best placed to adapt to a rapidly changing commercial environment. The decisions organisations make today may have far-reaching implications tomorrow.

We’ve produced a series of insightful analysis, practical checklists and concise guides to help you identify and assess the key legal and commercial issues, how to mitigate risk now and in the future as well as the short and long-term regulatory and operational implications of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
