COVID-19 Issues for Business Entities
The outbreak of the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) significantly impacts business entities and the way they conduct business. In accordance with social distancing requirements, many states have passed executive orders or emergency legislation or adopted temporary policies across a range of issues, such as:
- Closing state offices to the public for in-person filing of business documents.
- Permitting corporations to hold virtual-only meetings of shareholders, which are meetings held solely through remote or electronic communication without providing a location for the physical assembly of shareholders.
Given the changing nature of state action, we at Lowenthal will be continuously monitoring and updating our information to deliver real-time updates as states modify their responses to COVID-19. Business attorney Justin Lowenthal is available to assist clients with emergency and business continuity planning, jurisdictional monitoring, and small business financing options.
For questions or inquiries, or to schedule a consultation with Attorney Justin Lowenthal, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to being of service.
