Many businesses have had to grapple with the effects of temporary closure and/or the imposition of operating restrictions – and the legal repercussions of such measures.

Businesses recovering from the impact of COVID-19 will face a host of legal issues they hadn’t dealt with prior to the pandemic. Your options need to be explored.
