COVID-19 Portal Offers Multifaceted Support Tools for Businesses


New platform includes web portal, blog and global travel tool

Mayer Brown announced today that its COVID-19 Global Response Team, which is closely monitoring the situation worldwide and is equipped to respond rapidly to client inquiries while providing holistic and practical guidance to novel questions arising from the impact of the coronavirus, has launched the COVID-19 web portal, blog and the Global Traveler Navigator tool.

The web portal includes global guidance on the emerging legal issues that are essential to navigate the changing scenario, in addition to providing a one-stop resource center that aggregates the firm’s relevant legal updates and insights on COVID-19 and links to other resources.

The blog, which is edited by the core response team, provides clients and businesses with timely updates, legal analysis and commentary on the latest developments surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak. It will address topics for a global audience, such as employment, supply chain, crisis management/risk management, corporate governance, capital markets, M&A, loan financing, restructuring, dispute resolution, financial regulatory and insurance. Regular blog contributors include members of the firm’s global multidisciplinary response team. Click here to subscribe to the COVID-19 Response blog.

The team’s Global Traveler Navigator tool provides a heat map of the over 110 (and growing) countries which have travel, quarantine or health checks, or visa restrictions, and which travelers are impacted by those restrictions. Click here for more information on the travel tool.

According to Jeremy Clay, Mayer Brown’s managing partner, “In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Mayer Brown’s prioritized focus is on helping our clients manage the emerging and challenging issues every global community is facing. To assist our clients, we have launched a web portal, blog and travel tool, which together help clients stay ahead of the curve during this complex time. Mayer Brown’s footprint across four continents provides us with a uniquely global perspective to help clients mitigate the human, social and financial consequences they are confronting as a result of this pandemic.
