Gibson Dunn’s lawyers regularly counsel clients on issues raised by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are working with many of our clients on their response to COVID-19. The following is a round-up of today’s client alerts on this topic prepared by the Gibson Dunn team. Our lawyers are available to assist with any questions you may have regarding developments related to the outbreak. As always, for additional information, please feel free to contact the Gibson Dunn lawyer with whom you usually work, or any member of the firm’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response Team.
Due to the ongoing assessment of the impact of COVID-19 on companies’ operations, liquidity and capital resources and overall economic and market conditions, companies should take special care in preparing for their quarterly reporting. To aid in this effort, the staff (the “Staff”) of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) has posted a new set of questions that companies should consider in evaluating whether certain disclosures should be included in their earnings release and, in light of its potential materiality, in the management discussion and analysis (“MD&A”) included in the periodic reports (e.g., the upcoming Form 10-Q for the second quarter of 2020).
Join our panel of seasoned Gibson Dunn partners and associates in a discussion concerning how such group actions might arise in the wake of COVID-19 and strategies for defending them in the UK employment tribunal.
