Tanenbaum Keale LLP partner Heather Fine will join a panel hosted by the Product Liability Advisory Council on August 27 to discuss COVID-19 challenges facing in-house and outside law practices.

Among the topics Fine and the panel will discuss include:

  • How the pandemic has affected the operation and functioning of law practice
  • How organizations effectively develop and enforce COVID-19 procedures, protocols and work rules
  • How law practices meet challenges relating to remote and in-office work

The discussion will also touch on what reopening looks like in the real world, and what is and is not working.  In addition, the panel will explore how the pandemic has and will continue to change law offices, real estate requirements and office designs, as well as how law practices can avoid liability and minimize risks of COVID-19 related employment claims.

Lastly, Fine and her colleagues will examine how courts balance the need and requirements of trials with the restrictions necessitated by the pandemic.
