3:00 PM - 4:00 PM ET

During times of economic turbulence and commercial uncertainty, your business team and corporate counsel are well advised to undertake a more deliberate and thorough due diligence process when entering into contract and transaction negotiations. Now more than ever, due diligence should be utilized as a risk management tool prior to entering into definitive agreements, with heightened scrutiny on critical issues that may be affected by COVID-19, including a counterparty’s employment practices and policies, possible changes in and compliance with applicable law and regulations, supply chain disturbances, key customer business issues, insurance coverage for business interruption, and cybersecurity safeguards.

Realizing the due diligence process should change under extraordinary circumstances such as a global pandemic; we will explore additional matters and issues that your team should examine; and offer practical advice for a proactive approach to managing counterparty defaults and business relationships.
