Vaccinating Your Business Clients and Your Practice

Edward Adams

Ed Adams focuses his formidable talent on the personal, economic, financial and legal consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic. Few people have studied, as Adams has, the cross-discipline affects of how the virus has and will shape our lives with a particular emphasis on the legal system and its participants.  Deep-dive into: 

  • governmental responses, the economic crisis, and the current state of treatment protocols and potential vaccines

  • recent Federal legislation (the CARES Act) in response to the pandemic;

  • contractual and commercial law issues;

  • bankruptcy law;

  • securities law and financial markets regulation;

  • employment law issues, the gig economy, and “working” from home;

  • tax law issues; and

  • the future of legal practice and the practice of law in the law firm, corporate in-house, and governmental agency settings.

You will leave this intriguing investigation with an understanding and appreciation for the initiatives and steps taken by public and private actors to respond to the pandemic as well as their intended and unintended consequences.  Join Ed Adams as he asks (and seeks to answer) if things can ever return to what seemed commonplace months ago, who will win or lose because of the pandemic, and how it has and will affect different parties in clear and more subtle ways.   Ed’s vast knowledge and unique perspective will expose potential ramifications that have not been widely considered or explored in the popular and trade-specific press.   Ed Adams’ internationally acclaimed instruction will refine and expand your knowledge and give you, your firm, and your clients a real competitive edge. Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity!
