Webinar: Loans, Litigation, and Employment in the New COVID – 19 World

Learning Objectives:

  • Force Majeure Clauses and Navigating the CARES Act Loan Stimulus
  • The New Normal in Virtual Litigation
  • Employment Concerns in Light of COVID - 19

Join attorneys from BoyarMiller as they navigate you through legal concerns in the new COVID – 19 world. Steve Kesten will discuss the intricacies of the Force Majeure clause and provide an update on the CARES Act – now that you know about the loan stimulus, if you qualify, and perhaps have even applied for a PPP loan - what’s next?  Are there more stimulus packages coming and how long can we defer any loan received?  What does my company need to do in order to have our loan forgiven?  Chris Hanslik will provide a litigator’s perspective on virtual courtroom proceedings such as hearings, TROs and explain how we expect to move forward with important milestones in depositions, mediations, or arbitrations without ever shaking hands with opposing counsel. In addition, Matt Veech will cover employment concerns so that you can be compliant and prepared to manage employees with work remote, positive test cases, or extended leave policies. Join the conversation to have your COVID – 19 legal questions answered and to better understand how we can be prepared for what’s next.
