COVID-19: Considerations for companies
The COVID-19 pandemic is causing disruption to businesses of all sizes across the UK.
With an uncertain economic outlook, reviewing how a company can deal with and adapt to the evolving business environment is critical. Understanding the legal rights and responsibilities of the company, and its directors, is also a vital part of this task.
We have produced a toolkit to set out some of the key issues for companies and directors, focusing on supporting employees, protecting company finances and commercial relationships and dealing with real estate issues. You can download this toolkit through the link below.
Our team has been working with clients on a broad range of issues relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. For further information on how we can help please get in touch with the listed key contacts, or your usual contact at Charles Russell Speechlys.
Please note that the information contained in this toolkit is correct as of 11/08/20. It has been prepared as a general guide only and does not constitute advice on any specific matter.
