  • Supply chain disruptions that are impacting the manufacture of consumer goods forcing manufacturers to seek alternative product sources that meet U.S. consumer regulations

  • All types of employment issues, including how to communicate to your employees, managing affected employees, remote work policies, privacy of record and employee travel, among other pressing issues

  • Evaluating disruptions to trading and markets, M&A/corporate transactions, commercial contracts, corporate governance (contingency planning for annual meetings) and disclosures for publicly traded companies

  • Monitoring the federal government’s efforts to address these issues, as well as emerging issues that businesses may face
