Navigating Uncertainty in a COVID/Post-COVID World Series | Part One: Proactive Strategies to Implement Now in Order to Protect Your Business and Avoid Litigation


As in-house teams and their outside counsel providers move beyond the early risks and challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, new insights are forming around the next wave of concerns your company should be thinking about in order to avoid litigation and proactively stay ahead of commercial disputes. Join experienced litigators from Lenovo and Groupon’s legal teams and litigation partners from McDermott Will & Emery’s Chicago office as they share their collective experience and insight relating to litigation issues on the horizon and the proactive tactics they have seen work and are thinking about as their companies and clients look to stay ahead of these hot button issues.

Key topics that will be covered include:

  • Force majeure—understanding key trends and updates in force majeure litigation and practical tips for protecting your organization going forward
  • Litigation and risk stemming from false or misleading advertising regarding products or services related to COVID-19
  • Nationwide COVID-related business interruption insurance litigation MDL and effect on scope of commercial insurance coverage
  • Practical implications on litigating your matters, including virtual mediations and settlement conferences and managing virtual discovery and investigations

We want to ensure we address the issues of most importance to our participants, and we encourage you to submit your questions for the panel in advance during registration.
