Akin Gump Launches Coronavirus Advisory Group and Resource Center

(New York and Washington, D.C.) – Akin Gump has formed a multidisciplinary advisory group and launched an online resource center to help clients navigate the legal uncertainties surrounding the novel coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19).

The COVID-19 advisory group comprises nearly 60 lawyers and advisors from a number of offices and practices across the firm, including health care, corporate, financial restructuring, labor and employment, litigation, trade, investment management, regulatory and compliance, and public policy. The team will advise clients on matters pertaining to an array of legal and compliance issues that may arise as a result of the virus’ impact on the workplace and marketplace.

The advisory group includes adjunct senior advisor Gov. Tommy G. Thompson, the former U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary who helped lead the U.S. response to the 2003 SARS outbreak, as one of its members.

The COVID-19 resource center will offer timely insights and analysis on the latest legal, regulatory and technical developments tailored to industry-specific interests and issues related to the ongoing outbreak. The resource center also includes a curated list of links to trusted organizations with up-to-date news and information on the outbreak.

“The coronavirus outbreak represents uncharted territory for everyone, and the situation is changing by the hour,” said Akin Gump chairperson Kim Koopersmith. “What we are offering is a comprehensive resource center featuring the most relevant and up-to-date information for businesses and organizations as they consider the potentially enormous impact this outbreak could have on their operations, from their supply chains to their workplace policies and everything in between.”
