Coronavirus: Preparation & Response

Monitoring the Legal Implications of COVID-19

Vinson & Elkins has formed a cross-discipline, cross-office task force to help assist with the many questions arising from the legal implications of the Coronavirus. Such inquiries may include:

  • Public company disclosures and governance matters
  • Litigation considerations, including those relating to force majeure provisions and other commercial disputes
  • Ongoing analysis of new federal and state legislation and shelter-in-place orders or other new governmental restrictions
  • Implications for M&A negotiations and agreements
  • Remote workforce and IT considerations
  • Employment and employee benefit-related considerations, including day-to-day workforce management, new leave requirements, medical inquiries, and workplace safety
  • Executive compensation matters
  • Finance-related consequences
  • Implications for government contractors
  • New tax-related initiatives and tax considerations

In addition, we have resources who can be available to address concerns specific to various jurisdictions, including New York, California, Texas, and London/United Kingdom.

The task force assembles a group of attorneys who are versed on these issues and are prepared to evaluate questions as they arise and direct inquiries to additional V&E or external resources as necessary.
