LHoFT and Allen&Overy Webinar - Covid 19: Your Legal Guide in a time of crisis
Episode 1: Managing your governance and contractual obligations with Allen&Overy, featuring Jacques Graas
The COVID 19 virus outbreak has created an unprecedented disruption on a global scale across the entire business community. This disruption raises a number of significant legal challenges for companies regardless of their sector or size.
During this webinar, Jacques will focus on three key areas of concern:
· Corporate governance: how to organize board and shareholder meetings and generally maintain good governance in the times of confinement?
· M&A transactions: what happens with arrangements pending between signing and closing? Can you still go ahead with planned transactions?
· Interactions with commercial counterparties (clients, suppliers,…): can contractual obligations be suspended because of a force majeure event?
Duration: 30 minutes
