Hogan Lovells is the latest City firm to offer coronavirus advice, opening a ‘Covid-19 hub’ with apps, quizzes and advice-generating tools to help businesses respond to the crisis. 

The online hub is aimed at industries which are facing delayed or aborted corporate transactions, disrupted supply chains, sharp decreases in corporate earnings, concerns over commercial viability of contracts, major event cancellations or a fall in customer numbers because of the pandemic. 

Among the tools on offer are an online quiz for businesses to gauge how prepared they are; a digital tool which generates reports on how best to manage supply chain disruption; webinars; checklists; and an app to help in-house counsel plan for potential crisis situations.

Last week, Squire Patton Boggs hosted a live webinar to deal with client concerns, including the use of force majeure clauses. Meanwhile, many City firms, including Allen & Overy, Baker McKenzie, and Eversheds Sutherland, have told staff to work from home for several weeks.


*The Law Society is keeping the coronavirus situation under review and monitoring the advice it receives from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and Public Health England.
