In light of the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are working with clients to help them address the challenges they are now facing on a daily basis, some of which they never imagined would ever happen.
We are fielding questions and advising on a range of situations and challenges, including:
- Are you entitled to business interruption insurance?
- Are you entitled to rent abatement, or conversely, can your tenant stop paying rent?
- How do you address defaulting on agreements?
- Any number of issues concerning work stoppage (from employment issues to addressing vendors/ creditors)
- Potential dissolution
- Partnership and shareholder disputes
