Sign up for COVID-19 current and future legal implications webinar by Optimal Solicitors
Following the recent COVID-19 crisis, businesses across the world have been faced with unprecedented challenges and have been forced to alter their way of conducting business. Social distancing and travel restrictions have meant in-person meetings, executing documents, and delivering hard-copy documents is no longer feasible.
In seeking to continue business with minimal disruptions, businesses have been adapting to the new world of remote working and electronic signatures have proven to be an invaluable tool. Businesses around the globe had to downsize their operations, no longer being able to fulfil contractual obligations and having to prove that the pandemic (or the consequences of it) fall within the scope of the force majeure clauses.
With the aim of supporting companies in financial distress following the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic crisis, the government has passed the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill 2020, which came in to force on the 26 June 2020.
In this webinar, experts from Optimal Solicitors will discuss some of the most relevant topics for the years to come: E-Signature, Force Majeure and Corporate Insolvency.
