Stein Sperling has put together a multidisciplinary COVID-19 Crisis Response Team available to help clients navigate, anticipate and address any business and legal issues arising from this pandemic.
Our Crisis Response Team draws from the firm’s diverse array of practice areas allowing us to bring a wide range of perspectives to each client’s unique situation.
Our COVID-19 Resource Center provides in-depth and timely information, updated frequently, to address some of the most pressing issues affecting our clients at this time.
Our business attorneys work closely with our clients to understand their business, evaluate their contracts, analyze their insurance coverage, and develop strategies for success in these extraordinary times. Whether its determining what financial assistance is appropriate for a client’s organization, or how to spend Paycheck Protection Program loan proceeds to maximize forgiveness, we can help.
Our litigation team is helping clients proactively address sudden and often dramatic changes in circumstances that impact their contracts, agreements, and business relationships. As heavily backlogged courthouses begin to reopen, our team of trial lawyers is well positioned to help our clients navigate the complexities brought on by COVID-19, and to litigate, arbitrate and/or negotiate effective resolutions.
Our construction attorneys are actively working with clients to develop policies to make sure essential construction activities comply with best practices for a safe work environment; addressing important contractual provisions in existing or future construction contracts; or, if needed, working on resolving disputes that have arisen due to the ever evolving conditions our clients face on projects.
Our employment law attorneys have been at the forefront helping employers understand how to best handle their workforce during this unprecedented time and advising on the legalities of layoffs and furloughs, as well as helping them navigate the recently passed legislation mandating paid sick leave and paid family and medical leave for those employees affected by school closures.
Estates, Trusts and Probate
Whether by Zoom, phone, or email, our estate planning attorneys are readily available to educate clients on what estate planning documents they may need, and what they can do to prepare for incapacity and death. With this awareness, we have the ability to further advise clients on what matters most – protecting loved ones and ensuring their wishes are carried out properly. This typically encompasses understanding trusts, minimizing, or eliminating estate taxes, addressing asset protection and business succession concerns, and planning for family members with special needs.
Our family law attorneys are continuing to assist clients during this emotionally and financially uncertain time to address the challenges of dealing with divorce, separation, child custody, support, and domestic violence issues. As heavily backlogged courthouses begin to reopen, our team of family law litigators is ready to help our clients deal with the myriad issues that need resolution, negotiation, mediation, collaboration, or litigation.
Our injury law attorneys continue to process and resolve our clients’ new and ongoing auto accident claims despite the current challenges posed by business shutdowns. Our attorneys work to ensure that our clients are fully informed as to the status of their claims, to assist clients with setting up tele-medicine appointments when needed and to answer any and all questions our clients may have regarding their claims.
Real Estate Law
Landlords and tenants are facing unprecedented business and legal challenges as a result of the COVID-19 government ordered business shutdowns. Our real estate attorneys are available to review your lease agreements and to provide advice on what landlords and tenants need to know related to rent deferrals, evictions, and related issues.
Our tax law group provides advice to businesses, business owners and individuals regarding all areas of tax law, including recent changes resulting from the COVID-19 legislation, as businesses seek ways to maximize cash flow during this unprecedented situation. With fluid and rapidly evolving laws and related policy decisions, our tax lawyers are on the cutting edge of these developments, and able to proactively guide our clients.
