LHoFT and Allen&Overy Webinar – Covid 19: Your Legal Guide in a time of crisis – Episode 1 – 30 minutes


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
