LawMatters March 2020

As the news of Coronavirus escalates, so does the conversation and concern surrounding it. As we’re all aware, on Friday, March 13, 2020, President Trump declared a National Emergency in all of the states where Offit Kurman has an office. We have unfortunately become familiar with the terms “social distancing” and “self-isolation.” Given the increasing risk, it is important that we all adhere to the CDC recommendations and work cooperatively to mitigate risks. While there are many unknowns about the virus and the impact on the economy, we at Offit Kurman need to do our part to help limit the spread of the virus.

Read more and find the latest Offit Kurman webinars, articles, updates, and events regarding COVID-19 in the March 2020 Edition of LawMatters.


Offit Kurman lawyers remain dedicated to supporting our clients during this time of uncertainty. Offit Kurman created this resource  – dedicated to COVID-19 advice, information, and strategies – to assist clients and others in remaining current with the implications of the changes to our lives and businesses resulting from the virus and government directives.

We will continue to keep you up-to-date on new information, thought leadership, practical advice and strategies and the precautions you should be taking over the next few weeks.
