Vedder Price Coronavirus Task Force

The current unprecedented global health crisis has thrown markets into chaos, disrupted supply chains and challenged employers to deal with some of the toughest workplace issues in modern history. Companies are being forced to change their priorities and modify the way they do business. At Vedder Price, we are fully prepared to provide unparalleled support across a variety of disciplines that our valued clients need at this difficult time.

To that end, Vedder Price has established a multidisciplinary Coronavirus Task Force to address the multitude of transactional, regulatory, litigation and employee relations issues that our clients are facing as a result of the crisis, in the US as well as the UK and EU. Our Task Force is comprised of high caliber legal professionals in a variety of disciplines acutely impacted by this crisis. In addition to providing readily available support for our clients as challenging issues relating to COVID-19, a goal of our Task Force will be to generate regular thought leadership bulletins on a variety of topics relevant to this challenging arena.

Listed below are members of our Coronavirus Task Force. Please reach out to any of them with discipline-specific questions or support needs. Additionally, click through the Task Force site to read our Vedder Thinking thought leadership alerts on coronavirus issues, which we will continue to update as additional bulletins are released.
