COVID-19 Task Force

COVID-19 has disrupted lives and caused all of us to evaluate our business practices. This is no different for the legal aspect of business. The implications are far and wide.
It is also a fluid situation, which causes uncertainty. At Spilman, our goal is to help mitigate that uncertainty by providing you with business and legal guidance grounded in a fact-based analysis.
To bring you the most up-to-date information, we have formed a multidisciplinary COVID-19 Task Force. Spilman attorneys are available seven days a week to help with any COVID-19 related legal issues. We are a part of your team, and we are committed to your success regardless of the current climate.
We will continue to monitor this situation as it relates to business and legal matters, and will be emailing updates when there is certainty as opposed to speculation on important developments.
