The guide includes:

  • Crisis & reputation management
  • Workplace issues
  • Navigating contractual obligations
  • Corporate & equities
  • Capital markets & loan financing considerations
  • Dispute resolution – Courts & arbitrations
  • Emergency procurement by the state of supplies

Webber Wentzel will continue to evaluate and assess how to address the threat posed by Covid-19 to our businesses and will apply key learnings from other jurisdictions that are further ahead in the life-cycle of this market development and they will continue to find solutions to assist you in protecting your businesses.
