Coronavirus Class Action Webinar—Taking Steps to Prepare for the Coronavirus Class Action

On Friday, my partner, Jaime Stilson and I presented a webinar discussing several class action lawsuits that have already been filed relating to the coronavirus and how companies’ business practices during this crisis are facing scrutiny. Consistent with expectations, the list of class actions continues to grow and covers the three categories of plaintiff classes: shareholders, consumers and employees.

An analysis of the legal theories in this first wave of claims is useful for those companies wishing to implement prophylactic measures to minimize this risk. The video playback is available below. Check back periodically as the list of coronavirus class actions will be updated in the coming days.
