COVID-19 Task Force

Gordon & Rees is carefully tracking the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and working to assist clients with the evolving legal ramifications of the outbreak in their businesses.

We have assembled a COVID-19 Task Force to provide practical and proactive guidance to clients on the ever-changing legislation issued at the federal, state and local level. Our Task Force brings together a multi-disciplinary team of lawyers with relevant experience in pertinent practice areas. A partner at Gordon & Rees also serves as National Coordinating Counsel for one of the world’s largest insurers concerning COVID-19 related claims against insurance agents and brokers.

Please contact our Task Force leaders (listed to the right and below) if we can assist you. With offices in all 50 states, we are able to provide guidance to those that must respond to and prepare for the evolving pandemic.

Our Task Force is sharing up-to-date information and best practices.  Please revisit our COVID-19 Hub as it will be updated regularly.
